The Dominance of WordPress Continues

WordPress’ overwhelming popularity as a content management system is one of the reasons I use and recommend it as a platform for new sites or site redevelopment. Having that large a user base means it’s that much easier to find developers and to hire consultants or employees who already know the ends and outs of the software.

But when I see the statistics, such as those presented in WPEngine’s new infographic below, I’m impressed all over again with how dominant WordPress has become. Dominance doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the “best” CMS, but for small businesses it remains a solid, relatively safe choice that’s likely to hold up over several years.
