You can password the stream, and give the password out on your website.
Other than that, I don't know of anyway to force page views before
accessing arbitrary internet services.  Anything you do can be trivially
worked around by bots, unless you force people to manually type in
something that you put in AI-resistant image.

Why don't you put some ads for your site in the stream, or make one play
for everyone on the first connect.  Then you'll get the page views you
want possibly.
