  1. Darren, that is impressive although I have to caution you that when you set up site meter, which I just did six weeks ago setting up our blog, you can start your counter at any number you want. So it’s tough to say if that is an actual or artificial count. Best thing to do is watch it over the next 24 hours.

  2. Nice Blog, but wheres the comments?

  3. Jon says:

    Wow that is insane. And I get happy if I get 7 visits in a day….

  4. Darren Rowse says:

    you can tell its real Trevor if you look at their referals and particularly the graphs for the last day/week etc.

    there were 300+ visitors an hour.

    Gawker are a huge network so these numbers are not unusual for their new blogs.

  5. the same – to even bigger degree – applies to WeblogsInc.
