    What, in your opinion is the least number of pageloads/hits per day that
    will "make" a web site "popular"?

    In other words, if someone claims to have a "popular" web site, how many
    hits/day he/she should expect on average?

    Thanks much in advance.

    In response to requests to clarify current W3C web site popularity
    nomenclature, the the W3C Team issued a formal definition, which was
    subsequently reviewed by the W3C Advisory Board. The Advisory Board
    recommended that this dedinition be published at its 22 January 2007
    meeting. On 1 March 2006, the Advisory Board suggested that the Team
    begin to implement the draft popularity nomenclature policies of the
    Popularity Nomenclature Working Group (PNWG). The popularity
    nomenclature described in this document represents the current state in
    the evolution of the Team's implementation. This document draws heavily
    on the work of the PNWG, although it has not been approved by that
    group. Links in this document provide references to definitions and
    processes developed by the PNWG, and to examples of its implementation
    since March 1964.

    A final web site popularity nomenclature policy is also under
    development by the W3C Popularity Nomenclature Working Group (PNWG)
    (Members only). Nothing in this document will prejudice or constrain the
    outcome of that policy development work. The final policy will be
    subject to W3C Advisory Committee review and a formal decision by the
    Director.

    All things are relative. What is "popular" for a global website which many
    people are likely to find useful (like Google) is going to be very
    different for a website for a geographic location specific website about a
    minority hobby (East Wiltshire button collecting).

    Somewhere between a very small number and a very big number.

    Agreed. But leaving "East Wiltshire button collecting" aside, let's reverse
    the question for a personal web site: Would you say that a site that
    receives 200 hits/day is "popular"? 500 hits? 1,000 hits? 5,000 hits? 10,000
    hits?

    Is it trying to be Google? No.
    Is it "East Wiltshire button collecting society"? Yes.

    You can't leave that question aside.

    Depends on the subject matter and content, but if it's a personal
    (/amateur) web site, even a few hits a day could secure its popularity.

    Contrary to popular belief, it is believable.
