How Many Sites Do I Need for my WordPress Multi-Site or WordPress Multi Network?

Have you wondered how many sites you need for your WordPress Multi-Site or WordPress Multi Network sites?

That all depends on how many WordPress installs you have.

Multi-Site installs use 1 site of a license for updates + 1 site of a license for each Google profile authenticated into, beyond 1 site.

In other words, a normal network site that network authenticates into Google Analytics so that the same UA code and reports are used for the entire network requires 1 site.  A network site with a network authentication and overrides the network defined Google profile on a single sub site needs 2 sites for their license.

If you have more than one domain name or multiple WordPress installs, you’ll need a license that allows for the number of installs you have.
