Open a Quarter Wine For Celebrations

WordPress has ruled the content management systems since the beginning. No other CMS can ever reach to its level. The famous and strong candidates like Drupal, Joomla, etc are not equal to WordPress even after combining their market share.

Last week, WordPress crossed the barrier of quarter of top 10 million sites ranked by Alexa. It´s big news for the community. Not only in CMS industry but, WordPress is taking over the web industry. In January 2011, the figures were almost half. WordPress holds an impressive growth in the industry and has nearly doubled the market share in the last five years. One in every four websites is based on WordPress now which makes WP a strong candidate in every aspect.

Jeff shared the stats on WP Tavern regarding the distribution of WordPress in different languages.

“When sites are broken down into languages, WordPress is used on 37.3% of English language sites. Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish sites are in between 38-40% while Bengali is 51.3% and 54.4% for Bosnian. Only 10.6% of WordPress sites are in Chinese with 6.9% for Korean.”

In the beginning, we discussed fast loading websites. Google minimizes the support to websites that are not using any content management system. It is a big room to play for the WordPress community. Matt Mullenweg considers it as an opportunity and he is passionate about the other 75% market share. Almost 57% of websites are still not using any known CMS which is alarming. Matt believes that Jetpack can bring revolution in the web market. He is definite about the growth of WordPress up to 50% market share with the help of Jetpack.
