The real number of interest though of course is unique visitors. Do you know what that number is?

My point is that 1/2 million successful requests (is that hits) sounds really impressive (if somewhat unbelievable) until you realise that the live games tfd file keeps refreshing every few seconds to keep up with moves played. Each time it does this is a hot, so this number is in fact fairly meaningless.
The number of unique visitors is much more interesting (although it will be much lower, probably several thousand) because it will tell us how many individuals are looking at the site. And persumably each of these is a chess player or a potential chess player.

The cookies method is even worse - what sort of figures do you get then?
