WordPress has been the leader for 10 years

As has become clear in our previous text, WordPress is undoubtedly the most popular platform for website development. It is preferred not only for small sites and blogs sharing personal creativity or organic content, but also for big sites and online stores that are much heavier and support vast databases and content. WordPress’s accessibility makes it preferred by both private individuals and large companies that use the Internet as an effective means of presenting their business. The market share of WordPress in relation to other content management systems is significantly higher, with tendencies to remain at the forefront, as well as to develop qualitatively and to grow.

That’s why in this text we’ll let you know how WordPress’s market share has been stagnating over the past few years, so we can figure out what its popularity is about and whether it’s going to increase in the future. Of particular importance are also the rates of development that are determined by the platform’s attractiveness and its distribution among consumers. We hope that the information that we will outline here will be useful to you when choosing a website development platform and that you can qualitatively select and take an informed and informed decision to help you grow your business and properly manage the created from you web sites.

Starting from the most recent data, we will expose the consistent movement of WordPress market share worldwide. It is known that from the beginning of 2017 to February 2019 WordPress has increased its market share by almost 6%. In 2017, he powered 27.3% of all web sites on the web. At this time, the platform supports 33% of them. The jump for only 2 years is indicative in many ways. Certainly, the number of WordPress users has increased in quality and has trusted the development of their Web sites on a secure, reliable and easy-to-use system that guarantees quality management accessible to everyone without the need to have specific knowledge in the field or to trust the work of IT specialists. Statistics show that this indicator is certainly becoming the engine for choosing a platform to build websites.

Let us return, however, to the data which in itself provide our assertions. Based on W3Techs statistics, we can go back almost 10 years back to 2011. Then, WordPress’s market share was 13.1% of the total usability of content management platforms. Even then, WordPress’s position towards its competitors has shown a trend towards high usability of the system. In 2012, the share rises to 15.8%. In 2013 it is now 17.4%. The following years will mark an even more rapid increase in the number of WordPress users, which will show you in tabular form.

From these statistics, we can conclude that over the past eight years, WordPress’s market share in web site selection has been almost normally increasing, with between 1% and 4% of the total share of all content management and content management systems. It is also noticed that there is no downward trend in WordPress usability. On the contrary, the ever-increasing increase indicates that the platform’s constancy will soon be able to celebrate its unprecedented market. At the moment, the WordPress platform delivers accurately one-third of all web sites on the web. Undoubtedly, no platform has so far achieved such a powerful result. But we’ll talk about it a little later.

We can formally announce that at the present time – February 2019 – the full database of sites supported by WordPress is 39072. And you can estimate how many users have trusted the construction of their websites on this platform. Here is not their content – it is heterogeneous and comprehensive. Therefore, there is no room for wondering whether making websites is easiest and easier for WordPress users. Statistics speak for themselves.

However, in order to avoid any doubt, we have also tried to track the market share of competing content management platforms. Make your informed and informed choice, tracking our other texts on the subject. Expect more information!
