WordPress in 2013 – Stats and Info

wordpress 2013WordPress – if you are a blogger, chances are you know this platform – and there is a strong chance that you use it! This platform has exploded in popularity, in fact- according to a  a survey done by WP Engine, it was found that 29% of people know what WordPress is.

Elegant Themes recently attended Wordcamp San Francisco and put together a inforgraphic with fabulous information from Matt Mullenweg, the co-founder of WordPress – “State of the Word”. This graphic is full of interesting stats that compare WP in 2013 to previous years.  

A few WordPress 2013 tidbits I found of interest:
1. WordPress has taken center stage in the blogging world as the standard blogging platform. While you may just think of WP as a blogging platform, it is actually a popular CMS (content management system). 69% of websites using WP are using it as a CMS only.

2. In the last 12 months, WP has had 46,000,000 downloads.

3. WordPress is set to release WordPress 3.6 in the next few weeks. WordPress 3.7 will release in October and WordPress 3.8 is said to be available in December.

As an avid WordPress fan, I am glad to see this platform thrive. The more WordPress thrives, the better it is for it’s users at every level.

Is WordPress Your Platform of Choice?
