OTB recorded approximately 21,000 visitors in July according to SiteMeter, arresting a three month decline in traffic. While still short of the 24,000-odd visits in March, this one was done without the benefit of any InstaLanches, let alone three. Not to mention the absence of major combat operations.

According to the stats provided by HostingMatters, OTB had 9624 unique visitors, 25250 visits, 89575 page views, and 348993 hits.
