WordPress now hosts more than 60 million blogs, CEO Matt Mullenweg confirmed Thursday. The online publishing platform is now fielding in excess of 300 million unique visitors per month.
But according to him, this is just the beginning: WordPress’ developments on the social and mobile fronts are on track to drive even bigger growth in the months ahead.
“The things that are ultra compelling are more social features,” Mullenweg said in an on-stage interview with Mathew Ingram at the GigaOM RoadMap conference in San Francisco Thursday. The company is especially jazzed about the engagement it gets from adding social features to the platform. “We were typically doing ten page view per unique user. With some of this new [social] stuff, we see that go up an order of magnitude.”
