Thanks Springer, I hoped that spamming wasn't the only way around this question.

Strange double post.


Sorry.

I'll just fill this space in with something relevent then. The banners in sigs across other sites is a good idea, but will just bring traffic to the other sites. There has got to be a better way. I'm not sure how referals work, but I think they show the admin which sites their traffic is linked from, so maybe if we can get the site onto as many search engines as possible, that could be the key.

it was 40 and 41 I think. 40 questions or something like that and the site says the final answer to everything will be given to the one worthy.

I had that feeling it was page referrals and not unique hits.

Now if it's by domain, it doesn't matter how many people post to myspace or blogspot, it won't increase that number.

We need to try new domains!!!!

That is, if I'm taking the hints correctly

I just realized I have a ton of ATS points that I don't think I had yesterday.

someone put the game site in their sig, see if that adds points.

I'm with you. In the Urchin information there are about 20 search engines listed. If we get the site (I don't know how to get a site onto a search engine) onto those engines, there are 20 some-odd domains to add to the 'r' counter.

I think it was implying that the "r" stands for references. Explains both the bold and italics.

Perhaps it is how many main pages or something have the link posted on their page? Or maybe the # of unique pages directing people to the site through a reference (a link, a news article, a forum post)?

42 different sites have linked people to the page, perhaps?



I just received applause and 500 bonus points for this post. I think I'm on the right track.

LOL, i've been suggesting this all day long... However, other posters are correct in pointing out we shouldn't put all our egg's in one basket. It does seem like spreading the link is a crucial piece to solving the puzzle, whether that is through the extra minds it brings to our forum, or a physical trigger inside the game that must be met is anyone's guess.

Personally, I am going to go back through all of the questions and answers one last time to see if I can make out any patterns.

Okay, that tells us a bit more. We need more links to the site, let's get crackin'.

And perhaps the magic number of unique references is 101 as indicated by where the graphic on the ATS home page point to for this thread....(page 101).

Same here ... a few websites. Be sure to get people to click on the link (I'm gonna be master of the obvious ... the number will only go up if someone actually clicks on the link).

Unless the counter is updated manually, there is something we're missing.

I put the link on my dummy webpage www.winopoly.com... and had a person who has never heard of this game before go to my page and then click the link to www.thefinalanswertoeverything.com....

The r# didn't go up.

Okay, this seems to be taking a turn in the right direction. Now we need to see some results. Could take a little while.
