Every so often, I get a popup in a question that says 'earn the publicist badge by creating a link to ...'.
The badge page explains "Publicist" means "Shared a link to a question that was visited by 1000 unique IP addresses in 5 days. "
Is the expectation that these are links -outside- of math.stackexchange?
If so, I don't see how stackexchange could possibly count those kinds of accesses.
If not, 1000 in unlimited days is pretty difficult, given that very few math.stackexchange questions get above 1000 views even over a long time.
So, how is that implemented?
Publicist badge - how is it earned?
