If you’re the kind of person who loves playing with statistics over the weekend, you’re going to love this! The anonymous results from the survey mentioned in this year’s State of the Word have been made available.
There’s a lot of fascinating info to collect from the data. The piece that interests me the most is already detailed in the post itself:
6,800 self-employed respondents were responsible for over 170,000 sites personally, and charged a median hourly rate of $50 . . . If each site took only 3 hours to make, that’s $29.5M of work at the average hourly rate.
Yes, that’s an impressive amount of money to be generated by folks using a free blogging platform. Which fascinating stats were you able to collect?
