    More than likely not Derek,

    A similar thing happened in SS with some ridiculously high figure (600+) which was (as you have done) also queried.

    Probably just a computer glitch, however on the flipside, there may well be a lot of “night-owls” out there!!! [biggrin]

    Cheers,

    Jo

    I thought there may have been a hiccup – maybe it had something to do with the ‘full moon’

    Oops sorry Derek,

    Should have been more specific, this unusual occurrence did not happen at the same time as it did here. The 600+ figure happened some weeks ago, and has since been forgotten.

    Perhaps there was a full moon that night also!!![biggrin]

    Cheers,

    Guys,

    I think its called “slurping” and the search engines do it quite regularly to build their hyperlink database.

    I doubt they were real users per se.

    Cheers,
    Michael.

    lol – slurping…
    hrmm. that gives us an idea ;) *kidding*

    The site counts people online in a particular time-out period (I think it’s 20 minutes).

    If you’ve been online for 20 minutes and not clicked anything, it judges you to be no longer on the web-site (hey, some posts are pretty large – it takes at least 20 minutes to get through them, let alone some articles like the ones at http://www.propertyinvesting.com/strategies )

    It’s not uncommon for there to be 100’s of people online (particularly around newsletter time when a lot of people seem to come back to the forums) – it’s 10pm now and there are 90 people online at the moment…

    I can assure you, the only slurping that happens at PropertyInvesting.com happens on hot days after a trip to Boost Juice. ;)

    But if you want to keep us honest, check out https://www.propertyinvesting.com/member/active.html – it shows exactly who is online at any time. If there are 500 people online, there should be 500 names or IP addresses listed on this page.

    Brent
