This summer, the WordPress platform achieved its 50 millionth web site benchmark. According to the CMS Critic, it’s the world’s most popular blog platform.
Lately, there has been a bit of back and forth about exactly which content management system (CMS) is now the most popular. Just keep in mind you can host your own blog or use that of a service provider.
However, when you combine the numbers of wordpress.com-hosted and dot org downloaded and self-hosted sites, it’s a huge user number compared to other systems.
So, which of all are the most popular in the blog world? The Royal Pingdom breaks it down with its analysis of the Top 100 blogs tracked by Technorati. WordPress fans can be most proud of their share of top blogs on the list!
WordPress started out as a blog platform and has grown into a fully developed CMS that’s competitive with most any other you want to name. You might give it preference points when it comes to an easy to use design, where code knowledge is not necessary.
I classify it as the next step up to a professional web site presence. More flexible than any other blogging tool you may have used, WordPress will move your business forward.
