Ten years! That’s a huge milestone for a project, especially one that had a pretty simple goal in mind from the start: give self-hosted WordPress sites many of the same features and functionality enjoyed by hosted WordPress.com sites.
It’s a great story. The Automattic team responsible for driving social activity in WordPress sees Jetpack as a way to expand and unify social activity across all WordPress sites, and winds up paving the way for a product that today helps more than 5 million sites with everything from security and performance to backups and integrations.
And what has Jetpack accomplished in those 10 years and 5 million sites? The numbers are staggering:
122 billion blocked malicious login attempts. 9,330,623 of those on CSS-Tricks, as we write.
269 million site backups. Last backup of CSS-Tricks: 3 minutes ago, as we write.
24 trillion images served by Jetpack CDN. Incredibly, a free feature of Jetpack.
61.6 billion site searches. Try site search on this site, the latest release has really nice UI & UX improvements, like seeing the post thumbnail.
50 billion related posts displayed. Related posts plugins are notoriously heavy on the server, but not when you let Jetpack do it!
1.6 trillion tracked page views. Those are the numbers at work here with WordPress being some 40% of the web.
