WPTavern: WordPress Now Used on 30% of the Top 10 Million Sites

WPTavern: WordPress Now Used on 30% of the Top 10 Million Sites

W3Techs, a survey company that monitors usage of various web technologies, is reporting that WordPress has reached 30% usage or 60.2% market share of all the websites whose content management systems it knows about. This represents a 0.6% increase since February 1st and 13.1% over the last seven years.

Just five days ago, Matt Mullenweg, co-creator of WordPress, brought attention to the approaching milestone.

When it comes to WordPress’ market share numbers, W3Techs is the most cited source. While some say that WordPress now powers 30% of the web, technically, it is used by 30% of the top 10 million sites based on traffic according to Alexa. All sub-domains on WordPress.com and WordPress.org count as one site.

The internet is larger than the top 10 million sites. According to Internet live stats, there are close to 2 billion sites on the internet although a majority of them are inactive.

W3Techs’ numbers show that WordPress’ use is growing on sites that receive a lot of traffic and shows no signs of slowing down as it makes its way towards 50%.
