I know it sounds a bit shady but I also know many websites do this. Our numbers have taken a dive due to some down time and we need to look like we are still on track. Right now our counter is always in the single digits and I need to lok like we are in triple digits while we work on getting our traffic back. We use code from [url removed, login to view] for our counter. I know this can be done as our first programmer did it when we started and we disabled it after a while.
