As of today, one in every four websites is now powered by WordPress.
The open-source content management system (CMS) now powers 25 percent of the Web.
This is according to the latest data from W3Techs, which measures both usage and market share:
“WordPress is used by 58.7% of all the websites whose content management system we know. This is 25.0% of all websites.”
While these numbers naturally fluctuate over the course of the month, the general trend for WordPress has been slow but steady growth.
“We should be comfortably past 25% by the end of the year, ” Automattic founder Matt Mullenweg declared.
Matt said that the big opportunity is still the 57% of websites that don’t use any identifiable CMS yet, and that’s where he thinks there is still a ton of growth for CMS.[Via VB]
