Google Analytics for 1 year period, until April 17 2011:
This is only for the www.blender.org hits, not for all the other sites (like download, svn, trackers, blogs, wiki, shop, etc)
The Blender website is being visited by so many people that we can’t find time to process the website statistic files… with traffic peeks of 1.5 TB per month, these stats files just are too large to digest easily.
Over the period of july 2004 to june 2005 we did count the download stats though, and with no full stats available of the American and Australian mirrors we already counted:
over 1.8 Million Blender downloads the past year!
Only in the first week of the release of Blender 2.37 we counted over a quarter million already. :)
You can view the sheet with stats here. It also contains information about the amount of Windows, OSX and Linux versions loaded from our site.

- German mirror, blendertestbuilds.de, 05-2008 to 05-2009, 17 TB transfered, 240k binaries (mirror also does movies).
- Asian mirror, xenoncore.net, 90k downloads
- graphicall.org, testing builds, 90k per year.
This means that downloads via blender.org are over 3.4 Million per year.
Further you can find Blender on many sharing sites, such as download.com, majorgeeks.com, apphit.comm, filehippo.com, freewarefiles.com, softpedia.com…
Lots of thanks to our mirrors! :)
