<nettime> B92.net millionaires (Modified by Geert Lovink)

Belgrade, October 14, 2005 - B92 web site has achieved for the 
umpteenth time a result which only the biggest world wide web sites may 
boast of. On Thursday, October 13, there were over a million page 
views, and more than 80,000 people visited the B92 web site on that 
day. This speaks volumes about not only the B92 web site itself but the 
domestic Internet also which has matured enough to deliver results such 
as this one.

The main reason for net surfers to flock to the site was the big 
success of our national football team. However, all other segments of 
the web site also drew huge crowds. We should point out that the Photo 
Gallery section had over 300,000, Sports – over 200,000, News – 
100,000, Forum – 80,000 hits, and so on.

The web site editorial staff would like to take the advantage of this 
opportunity to thank all the visitors as well as to invite all of those 
who still have not paid a visit to www.b92.net to do this and see for 
themselves why this web address is so popular.

For the near future, we are preparing many more interesting topics and 
new web site segments like the Most Beautiful Car of the Year 
selection, new pages dedicated to female audience, more about healthy 
lifestyle, travel, etc. Our visitors will still have a major role to 
play and you may see the evidence to prove it if you visit our web site 
Forum as well as look up visitors' comments on almost every article 
posted on the web site.

B92 web site has for a long time been the most popular web site in 
Serbian language. A proof of these excellent results is B92's Alexa 
rating (www.alexa.com) according to which B92 ranks high among most 
popular world's web sites – 2,417. This is the best ranking for a web 
site from Southeast Europe. On its web site popularity scale of zero to 
ten, Google gave B92 web site an excellent 7. To put things into 
perspective, we should mention the famous Time magazine scored 8 points 
on the Google scale. A survey of pogodak.co.yu also shows the B92 web 
site contents are the most searched-for items on this local search
