    I’ll take full credit for providing your millionth visitor, since I’m from Seattle. 🙂

    Congrats on providing a resource worthy of such remarkable interest.

    LOL… you’ve been there before… that eliminates you from being the millionth “unique” 🙂

    Congrats Elliot!!
    Hoping you’ll be as successful (if not more successful) with your next million, and you’ll get there a lot faster!!

    Congratulations on your blog hitting a million visits, but came as no real surprise since quality content always attracts real traffic 🙂

    Congrats Elliot!!!

    This is no mean achievement. Quality always scores over quantity and your site is proof of that.

    Wish we can emulate the same in our site.

    And how many of the ‘1 Million’ were bots. LOL

      @ Lords

      I don’t know, but Stat Counter and Google Analytics were both pretty close, and they’re not suppose to count bots (especially from the same IP).

    google has no clue as to reading ‘logs’, I spent a month arguing with their ‘security’ team recently over FRAUD from the SAME IPS, after we pushed it through 3 levels of google, they finally realized, yeah, their software isn’t as good as top notch security/sem gurus that can tell you what the visitor had for breakfast who are click our clients ads

    on average 20%+ of all traffic is bots for most sites, if you have big traffic, less, but bots are a high percentage for ‘most sites’ so your maybe way less, but 1M is a nice number, even if 5% or 10% or 20% is bots

    1M is 1M no mater how you slice it, good job
