After passing 20 million blogs 11 days ago, the micro blogging service has achieved another milestone as Tumblr now officially hosts more blogs than WordPress.com (a feat they apparently achieved about 24 hours ago).
According to Quantcast, Tumblr is now a top 30 site, as the micro blogging service has dethroned GoDaddy.com for the 29th spot out of the top million sites in the US (note: WordPress.com comfortably occupies the 18th slot).
Although Tumblr receives far more page views than WordPress.com, according to Quantcast the latter apparently boasts far more unique visitors than Tumblr (which could be due to the fact that WP.com is a lot more SEO friendly than rivals).
Despite becoming a mainstream platform used by business, professional bloggers and even a government agency, Tumblr has thus far declined to embrace basic importing tools (allowing users to easily move content from a rival platform upon Tumblr’s servers).
Also do you think Tumblr will eventually surpass Google’s Blogger as the most popular blogging platform by the end of the year?
