I recently found a resource by BuiltWith Trends – an analytics company that provides free information on what Content Management Systems (CMS), e-commerce platforms, etc are powering websites they crawl. The most impressive piece of information is how many sites are powered by WordPress – see infographic below. A huge percentage of websites use WordPress because it’s free and easy to install on most web hosts. What is the even better statistic is how many of the top 10,000 sites are powered by WordPress – almost 50%! So if you aren’t sure if WordPress is a solid choice for your website you should first know that WordPress has been the choice for many of the web’s top websites.
