WordPress: 30% of the Web

leave a comment »

If you ever wondered just how many of the world’s websites are powered by WordPress, The Register just reported the number is 30 percent. That is, 30 percent of the world’s websites!

This is based on the web crawling firm W3Techs, which crawls the top 10 million websites as determined by Amazon’s Alex rating service.

WordPress tipped the balance to 30 percent as of yesterday. However, W3Techs provided the caveat that 50.2 percent of the world’s websites don’t run a content management system. 

But that just bolsters the WordPress story, because if that is, indeed, the case, WordPress has over 60 percent share among websites in the world that do run a CMS.

To what does W3Techs attribute WordPress’s success? Ease of use and extensibility. 

To which I can attest — that’s where this Turbo blog is hosted!
