WordPress is already in use on over 50 million sites.
The open-source blogging platform WordPress has overcome an important milestone: it is already used on more than 50 million sites. About half of these sites are hosted on WordPress.com.
In addition, more than 287 million people view more than 2.5 billion pages on WordPress.com every month, and on average per day WordPress.com users create about 500 thousand new posts and 400 thousand new comments, according to official WordPress statistics .
Last month, the Tumblr blogging platform outpaced WordPress.com in terms of the number of blogs, breaking the 20 million mark.
However, unlike Tumblr, WordPress allows users to install and use the platform on their hosting. Due to the simplicity and versatility of the platform, WordPress is used not only for creating blogs, but also for different types of personal, business and public sites.
