y-e-a-h... the "kewl kidz" focus their attentions on something better than 'faux~trendy' indicators, where queries erupt, so then we'd require having that SET-DOWN within here as for sum: FOC~"FAQ"US established, so there you "go" now!

Linguistically, that's not going to work...You've been "reddited?"

It kind of puts things in perspective... Boardgamegeek feels like a humongous site with all the content and users, but it's really but a drop in the ocean compared to the giants out there.

Indeed. Facebook has billions of minutes a month spent on site, and a 870m unique visits a month.

BGG garners probably 1.0-2.0m page views a month. Neither fact is good or bad, just a reference point.

Its interesting that the TIL page popped views up so high! I wonder if that helped BGG make some money or just banged them on bandwidth charges?!

Drop in the ocean in terms of page views/unique users, but pretty substantial in terms of total generated content (particularly relative to the number of users, I imagine).

Actually - we get about 1-2 million page views per day. But I understand your point. We made a few bucks on the increased traffic.

But I guess that unique page views is more important, no?
