Wikispaces’ Fourth Birthday. Check back tomorrow for part four!
Today’s the day. Wikispaces is four years old. As we did on our third birthday, we’ll take a break from our usual blogging to look at the numbers behind the site.
Back on March 18, 2005, we had a whopping six new members on Wikispaces, all unsuspecting friends who we enticed to join the site with promises of wiki awesomeness. We ended our first day with 87 edits, 18 wikis, and a feeling that people might actually like what we built. Small numbers, a lot of excitement!
Fast-forward four years: as of March 15 2009, we had over 2.2 million registered members on Wikispaces and over 900,000 wikis. Our members and guests edit their wikis over 100,000 times a day, with as many as 9000 edits in an hour. In the last 30 days, over 7.3 million people visited Wikispaces.com and our Private Label sites. Last month, Wikispaces served over 50 million pages and in our last year, over 380 million pages.
Wikispaces has grown because of you – your feedback helps us improve our services, your work becomes examples for others, and your recommendations introduce friends and colleagues to the site. Thank you for being an active part of our community over the past year and helping us get to where we are today. We can’t wait to see what year five will bring.
