My Blog Site Goes ‘Ka-Ching’ for

I’m simultaneously watching the State of the Nation Address and surfing the net.  Here’s a juicy bit of information I found via

 “The estimated website net worth based on it’s traffic value and online website advertisement revenue alone is around $110. receives 50 page views per day and generates nearly $0.15 in daily ad revenue.”


When I read this I was first a little jealous that I wasn’t getting a cut, and then I wondered about how many users there are.  While I couldn’t find an exact number, I did get some information on just how large is:  says that “Over 401 million people view more than 4.1 billion pages each month.”

Also: “ users produce about 39.3 million new posts and 42.7 million new comments each month.”


Then on the site

I read that 32 million active websites were run on the Multisite version installation of WordPress in 2012.


I’m too lazy to whip out my excel program and crunch the numbers, but in this case I don’t think I have to. is banking it.  

So, like I said, I was a little jealous.  Then, I thought about how much joy WordPress gives me, and I say they deserve the money they make, even if a tiny part of it is off of advertisements on my blog.
