A few months ago I explored 1000 of the most visited Czech websites and tried to detect if they use WordPress. If so, I was interested in which WP version they ran on. However there were only a few dozen sites running on WP. This research showed only a small preview of the Czech WordPress scene. I decided to do much more complex research and explore almost all active Czech Wordpress sites. I used our internal website index and wrote a crawler which searched other connected sites. In a month I revealed more than 65 thousand Czech WordPress sites.
