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]

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]

What… two full moons about four weeks apart?????
Wow… what are the chances of that…

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.

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.
