    Hello,

    Quick question: What does the big (WordPress sites in the world) number (currently 76,341,659) actually represent? Is it just WordPress.com sites or all WordPress sites – including WordPress.org installations?

    Thanks,
    CJ

    Just WordPress.COM sites –

    However WordPress.org software I think powers about 20% of the new web sites in the world

    As far as I understood, that’s ALL the WordPress installations in the world, WordPress and WordPress.com sites together.

    the stats page itself give you the answer it says THIS NUMBER “WordPress Sites in the World” There is no differentiation between WordPress.com and WordPress.

    FWIW-there used to be an additional statement on that page that “We host about half”. “We” being WordPress.com.

    Most of the time we match closer – but wait a bit and we will let the staff settle the difference on what is counted –

    Like justjennifer said, it’s WordPress.com and WordPress.org combined.
