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.

Wowww… what a stats!! WP is the best!
Wow. That’s a whole lotta pageviews, and a whole lotta words.
Wow…. Can’t believe we did all of that! Add one to the comments for this month!
wow, Congratulations!!!! go Matt!!, go!
Wow! What else could I say..I’m glad I switched to wordpress.
I stand in saying wordpress IS the best blog site on the internet today…. I don’t even have to do anything and my random nonsense gets hits… fantastic all around.. and have been a proud member for quite some time…
congrats! I’ve certainly been having fun with polls!
You’re pushing some serious bandwidth per month there.
Can’t wait to meet Raanan Bar Cohen and hear about working for Automattic. Hoping next time we’ll be able to meet this CBBQTT guy.
that’s so freaking cool.
I’m gonna go read Scalzi’s blog right now!
These stats are Impressive, but whatdo they mean for us as users of wORD PRESS?
Keep going buddy
You rock dude … surely do .. awesome jobs and creativity
God Bless You All
In summary: we rock.
Who knew that Nobel Laureates blogged?
Upcoming WordCamps – did you mean Austria? ;)
where is the 2.7 :’(
I am dreaming of it
thank you our friends for all these efforts :)
Too good Matt. Good going.
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!
Very impressive. Today the blogosphere; tomorrow the world. Your powers only to be used for good….
I know you just had a Word Camp here in October but I hope you come back soon.
Congrats with 1.000.000.000 mark….!
hey thats like AMAZING!!!!!
Kudos! – This is truly a great place to be, and obviously many more are hearing the ‘Word’, and gathering. :)
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!
I’ll pray about it. Thanks and smiles
Thank you so muchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! :-)
Congratulations on this magnificent performance, and keep it nice greetings from Austria Andreas
saramago on wordpress ¡¡ wow :)
lol – 8.8 million comments and I think I got five of them! I guess there’s a little more to get :)
Linkedin app. was an act of genuis by the way.
Thanks for all your work.
i love wordpress. SIETE BRAVI!! .. :)
Go daddy, go Polldaddy! I am sure, i wanna add that daddy to my site!!!
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.
The PollDaddy integration was great!
“wordpress is the best blog site on the internet today” (2)
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.
Awesome.. I love this WordPress.. Simply beautiful..
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??
You were my first. And you were gentle with me. I’m addicted to love..WordPress…
way to go WORDPRESS :)))
I have become a blogging addict. I check it like some ppl check facebook or myspace. I love it.
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.
Congrats! I love wordpress, how about next we focus on more robust stats?
Excellent!! Look what comes out when you put a word in a press.
How many blogs were deleted? This number always seems to be missing in the wrap up. Or were there no deleted blogs?
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.
its nice to see a summary of some sort. thanks
Fantastic effort Guys :) you rock!! Keep it on..
Keep it up guys. WordPress development keeps food on my table and I will keep supporting you all until the cows come home!
I love wordpress….Its very user friendly…
congratssssss!!!! i really love wordpress…
1,209,047 of those logins were me. Sorry.
wordpress is the present and the future of digital network!
congratulations and greetings from venice
Still wondering how big is the storage area network (SAN) and how to maintain the database for that gigantic traffic.
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.
waiting for the day you’ll let me put my paypal buttons on the my blog
However, wordpress is number one. I love WordPress..
thats exponentially ENORMOUS. thats the term
Those are some big numbers. Hard work and good ideas pay off.
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.
WordPress is the best around!
Switching to wordpress was the best decision I’ve made.
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! ^_^
There no reason to hunt for another blog site. WordPress is awesome!
WordPress.com is awesome! I hope we can narrow in more closely on who and where our visitors come from.
gotta love wordpress. :)
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.
love it! proud to be a member of wordpress….god bless us all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks WordPress for giving our not for profit agency this valuable tool to help spread the word about our mission!
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.
This is my first experience with blogging…thanks a bunch for a site that’s easy to navigate and easy to learn!
Thank you for this place! I absolutely LOVE WordPress!!! XOXOXO
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.
Keep it up ! i’m proud using this blog…
Be Better in the future…
This is our first experiance blogging for our winery…so far we are thrilled!!
I’m a newbie to wordpress, but loving it. Thanks and keep up the great job.
