Another statistical milestone

A graphic of the BBC News websiteFor those who take an interest in these things, the BBC News website just passed another statistical milestone - for the first time we served over one billion (1000m) pageviews in a month. (Yes, we’ve been keeping count of them all). For those who don't take an interest - time for you to move on to the next blog entry ...

But, for the interested: To give you an idea of how this compares with past months and years, it took us about two years before we served the first one billion pageviews. Our first 100m month was in June 2000 and our first 500m month was in March 2004. It'll be ten years this autumn since the site launched - who'd have predicted these kinds of figures for online news back in 1997?
