In October, we celebrated our first billion-impression month, and continued plugging away on WordPress 2.7 — along with a couple of other fun projects, to be announced.
Here are last month’s stats:
- 323,786 blogs were created.
- 343,832 new users joined.
- 4,085,148 file uploads.
- 1995.86 gigabytes of new files.
- 531 terabytes of content transferred from our datacenters.
- 8,862,195 comments.
- 6,680,516 logins.
- 1,088,583,200 pageviews on WordPress.com, and another 738,282,634 on self-hosted blogs (1,826,865,834 total across all WordPress blogs we track).
- 1,418,933 active blogs and 16,599,550 active posts where “active” means they got a human visitor.
- 1,179,018,712 words.
You went poll-crazy now that PollDaddy is integrated with the dashboard: 53,290 PollDaddy polls added this month — a 1250% increase from September.
We released the WordPress App for LinkedIn.

Too good Matt. Good going.
Nov 11th at 11:28 am
Great Matt! I knew you’re going to Brazil, really?? I’m so sad, because I cannot been there. At moment I’m living in Italy. I hope you enjoy very well! Good Vibes!
Nov 11th at 12:39 pm

Nov 11th at 1:53 pm
Kudos! – This is truly a great place to be, and obviously many more are hearing the ‘Word’, and gathering.
Nov 11th at 2:41 pm
These numbers tell a lot about quality of product (WordPress) and quality of service (WordPress.com and its data center).
Not too many companies can brag about billion impressions per month…
Thank you very much!
Nov 11th at 3:18 pm
I’ll pray about it. Thanks and smiles
Nov 11th at 3:19 pm
Thank you so muchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Nov 11th at 4:32 pm
Go daddy, go Polldaddy! I am sure, i wanna add that daddy to my site!!!
Nov 11th at 4:50 pm
Hello, Matt! the numbers are really great! It seems wordpress is a very large and nice community. I like the new features that appear often in dashboard.
Nov 11th at 4:52 pm
The PollDaddy integration was great!
Nov 11th at 5:13 pm
“wordpress is the best blog site on the internet today” (2)
Nov 11th at 6:18 pm
Great progress! Just a q – any chance of setting a time-date for the expiry of old blogs to release great names?
Seems a shame that wp is cluttered with ghost town blogs that never make it past first post. Sure if people knew that was the deal up front they’d accept it.
Nov 11th at 6:33 pm
Awesome.. I love this WordPress.. Simply beautiful..
Nov 11th at 6:41 pm
PEACEFULONE I am backing you up on that. I SECOND that question. How about having a wordcamp here in good ol’ Southeasten Michigan?? Any plans for it in the near future? Distant future??
Nov 11th at 7:27 pm
You were my first. And you were gentle with me. I’m addicted to love..WordPress…
Nov 11th at 9:28 pm
way to go WORDPRESS :)))
Nov 11th at 10:59 pm
I have become a blogging addict. I check it like some ppl check facebook or myspace. I love it.
Nov 11th at 11:02 pm
Nov 11th at 11:24 pm
pretty impressive stats. I’ve convinced a few friends to convert from blogger, and they tend to be absolutely thrilled to be part of the wordpress community.
Nov 12th at 12:27 am
Congrats! I love wordpress, how about next we focus on more robust stats?
Nov 12th at 2:51 am
Excellent!! Look what comes out when you put a word in a press.
Nov 12th at 4:03 am
How many blogs were deleted? This number always seems to be missing in the wrap up. Or were there no deleted blogs?
Nov 12th at 4:18 am
I’m really excited about this site. I had no idea what it was a month ago, and now I’m addicted to reading people’s blogs, and coming up with good ideas for my own.
The numbers are RIDICULOUS.
Nov 12th at 4:29 am
its nice to see a summary of some sort. thanks
Nov 12th at 5:16 am
Fantastic effort Guys you rock!! Keep it on..

Still wondering how big is the storage area network (SAN) and how to maintain the database for that gigantic traffic.
Nov 12th at 10:32 pm
I was devasted when AOL announced it was eliminating blogs, that was until I switched to wordpress.com, you rock and rule. Love blogging on this site. Keep up the good work. You diningdiva; savvyseafarer; divaonthego and Pattisprattles.
Nov 13th at 7:18 am
waiting for the day you’ll let me put my paypal buttons on the my blog
Nov 13th at 8:23 am
However, wordpress is number one. I love WordPress..
Nov 13th at 9:26 am
thats exponentially ENORMOUS. thats the term
Nov 13th at 11:43 am
Those are some big numbers. Hard work and good ideas pay off.
Nov 13th at 1:04 pm
WordPress is by far the best blogging setup. I have created a dozen blogs for friends and they are able to intuit the dashboard navigation and get going in no time. I don’t get why anyone would opt for another service esp since most of them don’t allow for pages in addition to posts. You have a special place in my bloggish life and benign heart. Gosh.
Nov 13th at 2:04 pm
WordPress is the best around!
Nov 13th at 4:12 pm
Switching to wordpress was the best decision I’ve made.
Nov 13th at 7:03 pm
I’ve just recently learnt about WordPress and started using it just last week and by far (as my experience with it would describe it), it had been one of the most fun and relaxing things I’ve encountered on the net. I’ll keep blogging from now on. Thanks so much.
And hey, Matt, wow, that statistic data sure is huuuuuge! ^_^
Nov 13th at 7:05 pm
There no reason to hunt for another blog site. WordPress is awesome!
Nov 13th at 9:58 pm
WordPress.com is awesome! I hope we can narrow in more closely on who and where our visitors come from.
Nov 14th at 3:13 am
gotta love wordpress.
Nov 14th at 3:42 am
We’re so proud to be part of WordPress. You’ve made our first foray into blogging fun and easy. Kudos to you. Keep it up.

Thanks WordPress for giving our not for profit agency this valuable tool to help spread the word about our mission!
Nov 17th at 11:06 pm
We are a nursing consultant firm – not an IT specialist in the bunch! We love WordPress. It is easy enough for nurses to use and the results look anything but amateur. Thanks for a wonderful tool to keep us in touch with our client base. We look forward to even more apps to make our lives easier.
Nov 18th at 6:11 pm
This is my first experience with blogging…thanks a bunch for a site that’s easy to navigate and easy to learn!

October was just all anxieties and worries that this world was coming to an end, but it didn’t, instead we got a great new President in November to easy things out. I am writing this because of you, World Press.
