9 Million

Rodney Dill informs me that OTB has passed the 9 million unique visitor mark as measured by SiteMeter since 4 February 2003.

As always, thanks to all who read and comment.

As I’ve often noted, SiteMeter is far from the best measure of site traffic, but its ubiquity has long made it the standard for inter-blog comparison. According to my site host, OTB had 978,716 visits and 4,252,986 page views last month alone.
