When WordPress get paid

WordPress is the most popular content management system (CMS) in the world. It has more than 60-million active users, making it by far the most popular CMS on the internet today. 

WordPress, however, isn't just another CMS; it's a powerful platform that has been used to power millions of websites and blogs for years now. 

In fact, according to one study published by UpWork in 2017 that analyzed more than one million job postings on its platform throughout 2016 and 2017.

WordPress jobs have consistently ranked among the top five most in-demand skillsets on UpWork since at least 2013.

How WordPress get paid

WordPress is a free open source software. It's also the most popular website platform in the world, with about half a million websites using it.

WordPress makes money from three main sources:

Paid plugins and themes - These are all plugins or themes that you can buy from their website (or through other online stores). 

Some of these are free, but most require payment if you want access to them. If you have one installed on your site, it'll show up as an option when people visit it via search engines like Google AdWords or Bing Ads Platforms/AdSense PPC networks

Advertising revenue - This is where ads appear on your site's pages (and sometimes even posts), either as text links at the bottom of each page or directly above them on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets

How much they are paid

  • How much WordPress get paid?

WordPress get paid $25 per 1000 impressions.

  • How much they are paid in clicks?

WordPRESS gets paid $1 per 1000 clicks.

  • How much they are paid in ad impressions?

They are not getting any money for the first 1000 ads, but after that they will be getting around $0.05 per thousand ads impressions (which means if you have 100k visitors and only 10% of them click on your ads then you will be getting about 500$ from AdWords). 

This is because Google makes sure that there is enough competition so that only quality sites can actually get any decent amount of traffic from them.

This means it's hard for spammy websites to succeed on their platform whereas if we were talking about Amazon or Facebook then it would be easy for anyone with some money behind them (like sponsored posts) to make some quick cash without having too many technical skills required!

WordPress is making more money than most of the companies in the world

WordPress is making more money than most of the companies in the world.

WordPress makes money through two main sources:

Subscriptions – You can pay a monthly fee to have access to all of WordPress's features, or you can buy one-time licenses for different amounts of time (e.g., 1 year). 

The benefit here is that if you're using some premium plugins or themes, there will be no way around paying some amount each month until they expire on their own terms—and since those are usually quite expensive, this could easily end up being a lot more than $10-$20 per month! For example:

 If I wanted to use Avada theme on my website but wanted it updated regularly so I didn't miss out on any new features/enhancements etcetera...

I'd probably have paid about $50-$60 worth every year if only because updates are released every other week at least which means that there would always be something new coming soon enough so users stay interested enough in using them which leads us onto point number 2...

this a very informational blog post

WordPress is a very powerful platform. It's also a great way to make money. There are thousands of plugins available for WordPress, and you can use any of them for your own needs or sell them as an add-on in the marketplace.

WordPress has been around since 2004, so it's been around for a long time—but that doesn't mean there aren't new features being added all the time! 

The latest version is 4.5, released in December 2018 with many new features including:

  • A better editor (the default editor now supports Markdown syntax)
  • Better image editing tools
  • New admin options such as 'Allow shortcodes' on content pages
