WordPress.org Nearly Beats Google.com

wordpressorgAfter a playing around with $timator the cool new ‘whats my website worth’ tool we noticed that Google.com was topping the charts at an unbelievable (but not surprising) $938,550,265!

Which site did we automatically enter for a valuation? You guessed it WordPress.org

We hit the calculate button and sat back in amazement the numbers kept rolling, and rolling, and rolling… in fact they did not stop for a very long time, and as the estimator started to roll above $700,000,000 everyone suddenly got very excited. According to $timator the second highest site worth is Yahoo.com with $695,051,384 but WordPress.org was passing that with no sign of slowing down. Everyone crowded round the monitor shouting encouragement. Could WordPress do it and beat Google? The numbers just kept spinning like a crazy Vegas slot machine, and it somehow felt like a personal triumph for those of us that have worked with WordPress for so long. Finally the numbers started to slow, and WordPress’s total was:

$908,693,787 – WordPress

$938,550,265 – Google

That puts WordPress second in the running and closing in fast on Google. Not just on physical value, thats not what $timator is about, but web recognition and popularity. All we can say is ‘well done WordPress’ and ‘thank you’.

Here are the final results from $timator:

Tribal

tribal1New kids on the block Gorilla Themes have released the monster wordpress theme Tribal. Mixing the dirty grunge theme feel with urban graff overtones this theme delivers in both looks and functionality.

Tribal has been developed to be used by anyone wanting to promote heavily within the music industry. It is intended to be used by artists, bands, record labels, radio stations, reviewers and industry news. With a little imagination though it could be used and developed for so much more.

Using the latest technology available the home page of this site presents your visitors with a nice and dynamic featured content section (jQuery) with full slide show of all your latest news / posts. This would look at home on any flash site but harnesses the power of wordpress and jQuery to be nice and SEO friendly, more importantly though it is simple to use with just a few options in the admin.
