One Billion Page Views
Is it possible for a Web site to receive 1 billion page views without marketing of any kind? I mean can it happen, sure … there is the Million Dollar Homepage after all. The net is virual.
The story goes that AJ bet a friend £1,000 (that is about $1750) that he could do it. Why not help him out, and keep him in fish and chips or bangers and mash for a month?
My name is AJ, I’m 26 years old, I have been making sites since the age of 17, I don’t have a degree, not a a-level, not even a gcse, everything I know is self taught, I believe that the internet is the greatest invention of the millennium, the door is wide open for me…
“I recently made a website that grew from nothing to 200,000 hits in the first week, over a game of snooker, I just happened to be boasting about it to my friends, which then turned into a debate on how websites work and how to promote them… one of them challenged me, and I love a good challenge, they bet me and said they would gladly give me £1000 if I could make a site that gets One Billion Hits! There was one major clause, I cannot spend a penny in marketing the website, just me, my laptop and nothing else! We all know I could simply put a refresh tag in and leave my laptop on for a month… so I told him I would get 1 billion unique hits just to prove it can be done!”
