According to Wordpress.com, over 409 million people view more than 18.6 billion pages each month. This figure comes from the number of page views across blogs hosted on Wordpress.com, both on sub-domains, and their own domains, or externally hosted blogs calculated by Jetpack Plugin and part of their network. Wordpress Open Source is an online publishing platform that currently powers more than 20% of the web and in 2005 they created Wordpress.com to reach an even larger audience. Almost everything on Wordpress.com is free to use for a blogger or website owner to get started making money online.
Counting an blogger as anyone who blogs, the number of blogs on earth by location would be defined by the platforms being used. However, it is very complex to define just how many blogs exist on the planet, as tons of new blogs are launched daily or started monthly from using various publishing platforms.
