WordPress Owns Over Half of CMS Market

WordPress Owns Over Half of CMS Market

WordPress is more than just the most popular CMS, it blows its competition out of the water! New statistics from a W3Techs survey in November 2015 highlight how WordPress has overtaken the CMS market: The WordPress platform dominates their vertical by hosting 58.7 percent of all CMS-based websites. The closest competitors are Joomla and Drupal, coming in at 6.6 percent and 5 percent of market share respectively. It’s clear to see that when clients are in the market for a CMS, WordPress is most often their choice.

One in Four of All Websites Use WordPress … That’s Huge!

Not only is WordPress the most popular CMS among its competitors, but it has also taken over a significant portion of all websites worldwide, according to the same survey by W3Techs. As you can see in the chart below, over 25 percent of the Internet uses WordPress. This popularity is demonstrative of WordPress’s ongoing, long-term growth. While the platform is hovering just over 25 percent as of December 2015, it comprised only 13.1 percent of the market four short years ago!
