Tumblr Continues Growth at a Phenomenal Rate


Tumblr, the social media network made up of millions of personal and business blogs, is seeing massive traffic growth.

Activity and page impressions of Tumblr blogs rocketed over the first half of last year and reached around 1.7 billion page views in the month of August last year (WordPress.com reported 2.1 billion pageviews per month last year) But Tumblr, which employs just about 10 people, has been unable to provide stable service for hours at a time to its users, because of high traffic. Tumblr had not anticipated such huge amount of growth in so little time.

David Karp, the founder of Tumblr.

According to Tumblr’s founder David Karp, the website is now getting more than a quarter billion page impressions every week!

Top blogging services like WordPress and Posterous have also seen outages. But not in the range of what Tumblr has been facing. Even with all these complaints, there has not been an decrease in the activity or the popularity of the site, and there are thousands of new users signing up on Tumblr each day.
