Omniglot was set up in 1998 by me, Simon Ager, and I have been maintaining and developing the site since then. Many other people have made contributions of new material, corrections and suggestions, for which I'm profoundly grateful.
All information and advice I provide on Omniglot and via email is free of charge. Omniglot generates income via advertising and affiliate programs and has been my main source of income since 2008. The income from the site covers running costs of the site and of its creator/curator. For details of advertising opportunites please see my FAQs.
If you like the site and would like to help to support it, donations are always welcome:
Or you can contribute to the site in other ways.
Since March 2004 this site has been visited by over 88 million people. An average of 1.5 million unique visitors a month (50,781 a day) make 1.9 million visits to Omniglot and view 3.2 million pages - these averages are based on stats for the last 6 months. The most popular pages get between 45,000 and 86,000 impressions (page views) per month.
This site is hosted by Kualo on servers based in the UK which run on electricity from renewable sources. My home, where I work, is powered by the solar panels on my roof, and from other renewable sources via Ecotricty. Almost all my work is done online and few things need to be printed, so my home office is more or less paperless. Generally I aim to use resources in the most efficent ways I can. I don't have a car and can walk everywhere I need to go in Bangor, and cycle, get lifts, or travel by train, bus, boat or occasionaly plane when I venture further afield.
Omniglot was incorporated as a limited company in 2008. This sounds quite grand, but it is in fact a one-man operation. There are currently no job vacancies and no courses are offered.
