November Wrap-Up

Before we get to the stats, I should mention that at the top of my thankful-for list this Thanksgiving was our growing group of Automatticians. These are the folks who bring you the awesome features and improvements that you see here every month.

Last month we launched geolocation for profiles and posts, introduced a new P2, opened up our new translation platform, GlotPress, and launched email subscriptions. We also announced proofreading support in the HTML editor, rolled out some improvements to rssCloud, launched a video contest, and had a Black Friday sale on our upgrades.

Now to the stats:

  • 509,048 blogs were created.
  • 6,380,052 posts were published.
  • 483,127 new users joined.
  • 7,245,509 file uploads.
  • 4,728 gigabytes of new files.
  • 865 terabytes of content transferred from our datacenters.
  • 7,516,584 logins.
  • 1,390,120,928 pageviews on, and another 1,491,289,510 on self-hosted blogs (2,881,410,438 total across all WordPress blogs we track).
  • 2,385,255 active blogs and 25,596,165 active posts, where “active” means they got a human visitor.
  • 1,526,632,774 words.

More stuff:

There were more than 222 million unique visitors to in November, according to Quantcast.

The current top three languages on, excluding English, are Spanish (7.6%), Portuguese (4.6%), and Indonesian (4.5%).

We made speed improvements, UI enhancements, and added video library support to WordPress for BlackBerry.

WordCamp New York had a whopping 700+ attendees. Other WordCamps in November: WordCamp Phoenix, WordCamp Victoria, and WordCamp Bangkok.
