I hit 800,000 views today. (23 days after my predicted 30-day window).
I hit 700,000 on 1/21/2010
. (17 days before my predicted 30-day window).
I hit 600,000 on 7/7/2009. (within 1 week of vague “June” prediction).
I hit 500,000 on 12/4/2008. (no prediction)
I hit 400,000 on 5/24/2008. (27 days past prediction)
I hit 300,000 on 2/13/2008. (1 day before prediction)

300K-400K took 3.5 months,
400K-500K took 6 months,
500K-600K  took 7 months,
600K-700K took 6 months.
700K-800K took 7.5 months.

Slowest 100,000 in awhile; I’m only getting ~450 hits a day. Things are slowing down a bit — people don’t like movie reviews mixed in with political links. The big decline started around when I started reviewing every movie I watched. Or maybe Google lowered my rank. At this rate of decline, maybe 800K-900K will take a good 8 months? That would put my prediction for hit #900,000 at around 4/28/2011 plus or minus 15 days. We’ll see what happens. I’ve been playing this game for awhile, but it’s getting harder to predict the future!
