Matt Mullenweg ‘Automattic Now Hits 300 Million Unique Visitors, $10 Million In Revenue’

At Le Web 10, Automattic founder Matt Mullenweg and CEO Toni Schneider were interviewed by TechCrunch:

Here’re some important notes:

How big is WordPress?

There are about 30 million publishers right now. That’s roughly 10% of all websites in the world. We’re currently getting about 300 million unique visitors on WordPress.com a month.

Are you making money?

We’re focused on growth right now, so we’ve invested a lot in infrastructure and so on. We haven’t been focused on revenues so far, but I can tell you we’re break-even.

How big is the company right now?

We’re about 74 people. In terms of revenues to sustain our growth, I’d say we make a little under $1 million a month from all our services combined.

(TechCrunch: that’s roughly $10 million a year, based on that statement and what we’ve heard from other sources.)
