What is Rocket Booming?
(v) The act of proclaiming one's popularity on the internet, especially when the opposite is true.
This is done to give a false appearence and to take advantage of the fact that there is no universal mechanism to track & verify web statistics and even Nielsen does not understand the difference between viewers, page views, hits, downloads, and subscriptions.
