200,000,000 Posts… and Counting

This month we passed an impressive milestone: 200,000,000 posts have been published on WordPress.com.

Does this number surprise us? Not at all. Because we’ve long known that you — our users — have an infinite amount of things to share with the world.  From posts about your struggles with life and death, your favorite hobbies or your simple yet touching thoughts of the day, you are who we have to thank for helping us become the success we are today.

Onward and upward. And if you’re curious to know more about our stats, you’ll probably enjoy this page. Happy blogging!

    200,000,000 is a lot of posts — how many words is that? I don’t see that stat on the stats page.

    That is fantastic! And it doesn’t surprise me in the least. I love WordPress!

    You are always ready to fix problems when they arise, and before things really get a chance to break down and spiral out of control. It’s very comforting to know that one’s creative writings are safe.

    And you keep coming up with unusual themes and interesting widgets, so it’s no wonder that you have so many adoring fans and loyal supporters!

    I think you folks are successful, for many reasons. For one thing, you folks are always so kind, so informative, and so available to help. And where else, and really, where else can anyone find a place like this to write, and share their thoughts? The resources you folks offer, in theme templates, to keeping track of ones writings, to all the hundreds of resourceful tools, is beyond me. But, I so appreciate you, and your “brain child.” Mr. Matt….It makes me ever so grateful that I stumbled here. I love you folks, and pray God bless you all. Elena Ramirez

    Congratulations to all of us! Couldn’t wordpress provide a ranking for each of the 11 million blogs it hosts regarding visitation and comment traffic? This would be highly useful to bloggers in guaging the peformance of their blogs. Something like what Technorati and Alexa do?

    Also, when are you going to give all blogs the facility to post icons like for Digg so that each post can easily be favorited and publicized by readers? Doing so might well drive the number of posts and the traffic even higher!

    By the way, the blogger with the “200,000,000 post” should get a shout-out. I’m really curious to find out who did it. I’m imagining that it’s a post on sports. :mrgreen:

    Congratulations on crossing the mark of 200,000,000 posts. Is it possible to consider to share ‘ a very tiny portion of your profit’ proportionately,with those blogs that have got more than 100,000 visitors (since you do not permit any ads)?. Am I sounding too greedy?? But 100,000 hits for my blog http://badaga.in , focused on a very small community in Southern India, is an achievement I feel. Thanks for the platform to perform.

    Thank You WORDPRESS! You are a “Phenomenon”. The only disappointment was that I have to web-host my blog or have a domain n then I would be able to install WP client. Installing client gives me a feature to install widgets/plugins as “Share/FB-Like/Tweets”. I now have to register myself onto NetworkedBlogs to have the same feature.

    I wish there was an option as in case of Blogspot where they could have FB-Like buttons configured on their blog posts without web-hosting or buying a domain. An FB-Like ensures more traffics and ur blog posts getting popular and reaching far and wide.

    My only disappointment – Please provide me a facility for integrating FB-Like button on the web access.
