This guy called AJ is trying to get a billion page views on his site for a thousand pound bet! worth a click... im not sure if he can do it though, there are only 6 billion people on the planet!

I found him on Yahoo News:
http://news.yahoo.com/s/prweb/20060205/bs_prweb/prweb341973_1

He says on the interview with Yahoo:
"ThePixelWebsite.com (http://www.thepixelwebsite.com/) grew from nothing to 200,000 hits in the first week of being online, over a game of snooker, I just happened to be boasting about it to my friends, which later turned into a debate on how websites work and how to promote them... one of them challenged me, and I love a good challenge, they bet me and said they would gladly give me ? 1000 if I could make a site that gets One Billion Hits! There was one major clause, I cannot spend a penny in marketing the website, just me, my laptop and nothing else. We all know I could simply put a refresh tag in and leave my laptop on for a month. so I told him I would get 1 billion unique hits just to prove it can be done."

The site is:
http://www.onebillionpageviews.com (http://www.onebillionpageviews.com/)

What do you think? I think he can do it but it's gonna take ages !!!

There's a LOT of pixels left on that page. If it's cheap enough, maybe I should advertise ID there?

Never mind. It's 1 GBP, about 1.50, for 10 pixels. Pfft!
