Five millionth visitor

15
Congratulations to us for our five millionth* visitor.



Celebrations in various parts of the world are happening as I type.

* Of course maybe we’ve had more, or fewer, visitors. I personally have little idea as to how this was counted. 

UP-DATE: One of my students (Ben Lucas), who was in my office for an interesting discussion of the use of the OT in Hebrews, claimed to be the five millionth visit(or)** so I gave him a relevant old book to celebrate:

** I’m sure that now that the actual five millionth person has been identified, the anonymous trolls will admit their error.

  1. I unsuccessfully tried to entice a publisher into a (PR positive) book give away. Sorry I wasn't more persuasive. Can we find the actual 5,000,000th? I could probably rustle up a present (and doubtless Tommy has plenty of his books in a pile somewhere).

  2. If she or he can come and get the present I can offer a full box of The Epistle of Jude: Its Text and Transmission.

  3. Had no idea when in exasperation I started blogging on Friday 14 October 2005 before a great evening meal at the Gathercoles'.

  4. That statement is definately not true! Pageviews ≠ visitors!
    Google Analytics "Pageviews" describes the number of page-clicks, that have been made by visitors - regardless the visitor has been on that site before or not.
    One example: If the actual pageview-count is 5.000.000 and a visitor clicks "ressources" and after that "Index of Variants Discussed in Relation to the CBGM"... then back to "Essential Books", three additional pageviews would have been created (5.000.003). If this person does exectly the same again some days later, again three additional pageviews would have been created (5.000.006).

  5. Maybe he meant to write Visit or, or Visits

    1. Maybe...what he wrote is "visitor". At least Peter Gurry would have known better, I guess.

    2. Regardless, this demonstrates the value of this blog to TC particularly, and Evangelical Christianity in general. Please keep up the great work!
      Looking forward to 10 million visits or visitors­čśÄ

    3. No doubt Dr Gurry would have known better. All the same, I'm pretty sure he would have read all the way to the small print note at the end of such an extensive post.

    4. A lot is being assumed in this thread.

    5. My comment was a--lame--attempt at a textual-critical joke seeking to deflect Anony's ire. Maybe better luck next time.

    6. How do we know that Peter Head didn't artificially inflate these visit numbers? Hmmm

  6. Did Heraclitus say you can't visit the same wetblog twice?
