We’ve been recommending WordPress to our clients for years now, and it looks like we’re not the only ones.

WordPress has 25% of the market. Even Rudy is impressed.

This month WordPress has achieved an impressive milestone; it’s now the platform of choice for more than 25% of the websites on the Internet. That’s impressive, and the number should actually be higher because that figure doesn’t take into account the millions of smaller blogs that don’t get much traffic.

WordPress is not only popular with bloggers but it’s the market leader at every level; from Fortune 500 companies to government agencies, WordPress’ reach is truly staggering. The growth shows no signs of slowing as the community continues to build impressive software and with 57.4% of the market not using any CMS, there is a lot of potential for expansion. This is all good news for our clients who are almost exclusively using WordPress. It means more developers working on great plugins and themes and more features coming to the core platform itself.

Every 74 seconds a new WordPress site goes live within the top 10 million sites online. To put that into perspective, the second fastest growing CMS, Shopify (which we work with as well and often recommend to our eCommerce clients) adds a new customer every 22 minutes.
