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 79 million people. An average of 1.48 million unique visitors a month (48,941 a day) make 1.79 million visits to Omniglot and view more than 3.15 million pages - these averages are based on stats for the last 6 months.
This site is hosted by Kualo on servers based in the UK which run on electricity from renewable sources. My home, where I work, runs on energy from renewable sources supplied by 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 opperation. There are currently no job vacancies and no courses are offered.
