State of the WordPress Bloggers Address March 2013

State of the WordPress Bloggers Address March 2013

It has been 3 years since I started this blog and lots of tears and sweat has fallen, countless nights of watching statistics and analyzing data and statistics. All of these have been our bread and butter; – constantly tweaking our machine to give the best results for our few posts and articles. Welcome to WordPress.com, this is the home to the best bloggers all over the world! That includes you (if you blog here.)

Every month, about 287 million people reading about 2.5 billion pages in WordPress.com blogs. This blog, archian.wordpress.com is my personal blog. WordPress.com isn’t just available in English, it empowers bloggers to write in their own language – all 120 different languages. But English is the native language of two-thirds of all written articles. Trailing English are Spanish and Portuguese wordpress.com sites.

WordPress is the top choice for bloggers, this includes non-English bloggers. The articles are written in more than 120 languages. Here is a breakdown of the top 10 languages:

1st English 66%
2nd Spanish 8.7%
3rd Portuguese 6.5%
4th Indonesian 3.5%
5th Italian 2%
6th German 1.8%
7th French 1.4%
8th Russian 1.1%
9th Vietnamese 1.1%
10th Swedish 1.0%

Below is my screencapture (Archian here) of Alexa Statistics in March 27, 2013. It shows the World Statistics of WordPress.com in different countries. My anaylysis brings me to the question: if English is the main language of wordpress users, why doesn’t wordpress come up as the top websites in the Top English Speaking countries?

WordPress Statistics March 2013

From the graph above, it shows that Romania and Indonesia are countries with the highest rating for wordpress. More percentage of the population use wordpress.com than any other nation on earth. This is followed by the Philippines in third and India at fourth.

You may find it interesting to find that wordpress.com is ranked at 20th in the UK, 21st in Canada, Australia in 22nd and 27th in the US. One way I could explain this is the distributed focus of those countries. Their advanced economies are driven to more important concerns while the third world economies, the Philippines and India are getting the article making, blogging and research to drive traffic and earnings for those companies.

It is also noteworthy to see that Romanian’s population blog more than any other population. They may also be doing the blogging more directly than than their European, American and Australian counterparts. I am surprised to learn that Indonesia spend more time in wordpress than the Philippines, knowing the Filipino’s love of books and learning.

One thing to understand is that each country is segregated, not by the number of bloggers from that country but the percentage of active bloggers in wordpress.com in comparison to other countries. This means that for India’s 11th standing for wordpress as the most utilized website, could have millions of bloggers knowing their 1.2 Billion population. And if we take out the Filipino Bloggers from the 65% English bloggers, could they “outblog” the 3.5% Indonesian bloggers? Just thinking. . .

How about you? How do you read the above statistics?
