WordPress most amazing facts and stats infographic – The phenomenal growth of WordPress as the world’s best CMS
It is almost an end to this year now. Still then, I haven’t been in a position to go with my decision to have my blog shifted to WordPress. No doubt, Blogger has been great for me but anyways, WordPress is what people have been preferring the most. This again is very much clear from what I am going to showcase here below. Below is an inforgraphic, a very creative one with some very amazing and interesting stats on WordPress.
Also, below are some more amazing stats on WordPress -
- 14.7% of the top 1 million websites in the world are now powered by WordPress (one year ago it was 8.5% only)
- 1 in every 5 new domains created in US are running on WordPress (for new sites its easy to get started with WordPress – design, functionality and cost wise)
- 500 Thousand downloads in the first 48hrs of the 3.2 release (its not only how big the community is but almost everybody is active as well)
- 200 Million plugin downloads (how actively and beautifuly the community is contributing – proven by the use of the plugins)
- 92% of wordpress users now use it as a CMS (most important stats as per my understanding as I have noticed over years many a people using wordpress without harnessing any of its powers which is a shame)
- WordPress Maintains a zen like process of core development allowing it to be adaptive, flexible and open to extension (why we all love wordpress – its the only platform which is flexible and well documented for us to mould and develop further upon to make it even more stronger and beautiful as per the reuqirement of individual projects)
Also, here is another fabulous presentation by Matt Mullenweg who takes you to a historical journey of WordPress -
