6 Million Visits

OTB passed the 6 million unique visitor mark as calculated by SiteMeter some time in the 10:00 EST hour. The counter was installed on February 4, 2003.

Thanks to all who link and visit.

As noted previously here and elsewhere, SiteMeter isn’t the most accurate guage of site traffic but it is the most ubiquitous, making it a more-or-less reasonable guage of comparative traffic.  See my 2005 Year in Review for a discussion of our host-provided stats.
