10 million hits


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 10 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 10 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Just a quick note to say that this site has just registered its 10,000,000th hit – Ten Million! Over half of those have been registered this year alone, meaning that the year-to-date has generated well over twice as many hits as the whole of last year. In four-and-a-half years, I’ve generated as many hits as the BBC does in a couple of days or less… That puts it in some kind of perspective, I guess…

This 1,225th post was filed under: Notes, Site Updates.

Good on you, Simon – but look on the bright side. If you did generate as many hits as the BBC in a few days, you’d be looking at a 500-page bill from 1&1… 🙂

Almost true… 1&1 don’t do my hosting, one.com do – and my transfer quota is unlimited… Which is very good thing, considering the popularity of the videos I host and post! A sudden increase in traffic would probably cause the site to stumble a bit though, as it’d take them by surprise. BBC hit levels would probably result in them booting me off their service.
