Tumblr grows to 20 billion monthly pageviews, monetizes a fraction – The Verge

Tumblr founder David Karp has revealed new numbers that shed some light on the blogging service's growth and business model. In comments reported by TechCrunch, Karp says that the site now garners 20 billion pageviews a month, representing a big jump over the past year or so; Tumblr reported figures of 13 billion last September.
Such high volume would no doubt provide a dream platform for advertisers — except Tumblr isn't selling. The service keeps its blogs free from banner ads, instead electing to rent out a small space for sponsored content on the main dashboard. This means that only around 120 million page views a day end up being monetized, equating to roughly 18 percent of the site's traffic.
