This month we grew not just in blogs and users, but in company size. As I mentioned in a previous post, the team from Intense Debate is now a part of Automattic. We’re also trucking along with Version 2.7, and listening to your input from the two design surveys opened up this month.
Here are the stats:
- 334,004 blogs were created.
- 335,693 new users joined.
- 3,753,063 file uploads.
- 1766.49 gigabytes of new files.
- 489 terabytes of content transferred from our datacenters.
- 7,910,452 comments.
- 6,252,336 logins.
- 952,281,311 pageviews on WordPress.com, and another 694,985,128 on self-hosted blogs (1,647,266,439 total across all WordPress blogs we track — a jump of 191,084,227 views since last month).
- 1,317,190 active blogs and 15,433,379 active posts where “active” means they got a human visitor.
