Hits for popular?

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.
