I was behind his cause at first. Listen, the bet is not about 1 Billion hits, it never was. More like, I can come up with a gimmic to get net traffic on to my site, and make some money from it, without having any content whatsoever, or putting money down for exposure. Its a sham, this guy has nothing to offer.

k at his current rate (the last few days) he has about 174 years to wait. he needs some free publicity. IAB is a start. I think it`d be awesome if he did it because it would give hope to everyone trying to make money off of nothing... the american dream

Alright, listen up. It is possible. It`s even probable. It will just take a many years, and probably several reposts here for him to get it. There is no time limit on the bet. Which is a good thing for his friends, who will eventually have to pay up.

There are 3 things that could happen here. The first is the most likley, and that is that he will never reach his target of 1 billion hits. As mikeeegeee says there arent that many people who have internet acess. And if you can click every hour and it counts then those arent genuine hits are they? goes against the plan...

The second outcome is he`ll reach his goal, but it will take a long time, probably after he dies and the page becomes derelict and the bet forgotten.

The last and least likley outcome is that he will reach his goal but it will be his decendants that recieve the money, wich will be worth a lot less in the future due to inflation.

He seems to be at a hit per 2-4 seconds. Just under 70k now. Anyway, pple might help him by rotating their ips and refreshing the page constantly, he`d get there a lot faster but it wouldnt be fair.

Hes probably going to spend a lot more keeping that domain name than any prize he statistically wount win. He could make a fortune in ads

Mikeeegeee, if you read three posts up you`ll see that you can go back every hour and have your click count again. So 1/6 of the world`s people do NOT have to visit the page.

Absolutely physically impossible. I don`t know the statistics but I doubt there`s even a billion people in the WORLD with the internet. And what he`s asking is essentially that.

What`s wrong with helping people out (in a very simple manner I might add)? To those who are insulting and being so pessimistic or to those who don`t want to see it happen - then don`t support it. That easy.

ANYTHING is possible and it`s not like his bet has a time limit of when he has to have the hits in. So years down the road his buddies owe him $1000. Big deal! If it happens, it happens. If it doesn`t, it doesn`t. I`m sure he`s doing plenty of promoting etc, but I doubt it`s his entire life.

It`s a fun, quirky challenge. Participate or not. But you don`t have to insult people because their ideas are not as realistic as you`d like them to be.

As the number gets higher and higher, the rate of hits per second will gradually decrease until it`ll take months, or perhaps longer, to get the final hits, if it ever will.

You have to imagine: even if he gets a million views, he`s still only 1/1000 of the way there. It`s not impossible, as many people are saying, just improbable. I`d be very impressed if he won the bet.

It`s gone up 20,000 in almost 12 hours...That`s an average of 2 per second now, and it can only grow.

Besides, those who want to actually help can add 1-24 hits a day...It may take a while, but it`s possible.

It would be funny if the guy had to pay 1000pds. if he didnt get it, say, in a year. heh. His site would have to become as popular as google to do it.

It`s a shame he didn`t think to `self-teach` himself different languages and add those onto the first page. It`d take more hits than the English-reading, internet-browsing public can manage, methinks.

I know someone`s mentioned this before but noone seems to have payed any attention so I`ll mention it again. Look at the small print at the bottom of the page:

"Hits counted by statcounter.com, as there are only 6 billion people on the planet, I have set a cookie time between each persons counted hit to 1 hour"

Still, admittedly it`s highly improbable that it`s not going to happen. Not impossible, but looking at the statistics that Peaks drew up it`s going to be a heck of a long time till he achieves his goal - and besides, people will lose interest, so the amount of hits per second will decrease over time. So yeah, highly improbable.

But you`re still ignoring the fact that, even if everyone who could visit the site does visit it, it would take decades to reach a billion. He`s currently averaging just under one hit per second. At this pace it will take over 30 years, assuming the rate doesn`t slow down. 1 billion = 1 million x 1000. It is a really big number.

Yea, according to my math, if he`s averageing one hit every three seconds (according to 136832125341) it would take the sight over Ninety five years to get a billion hits. I guess some people never realize how big some numbers realy are. A+ for trying, but I can`t remain optomistic about this.

There`s no way he could make it. If he gets one hit per second (which is more than he has been getting in the last couple hours, according to matthewsim88), it will take over 32 years to get a billion hits. To even do it in a year it would take just under 32 hits per second for the entire year. And, to top it off, they have to be unique hits, so every computer user in the U.S. would have to visit the site from five different IP addresses. If you look around the net, you`ll see that there are only something like 600,000,000 (60% of a billion) personal computers in the entire world. Not going to happen. He might, if he`s lucky, get a million hits, but not a billion. It`s impossible
