WordPress used to be known primarily as a blogging platform, and it remains the best solution to use for blog, however it has come a long way and has become a very comprehensive Content Management Suite used to power many different types of websites, including business sites, job boards, sites featuring classified ads, etc. It is extremely flexible, adaptable, and if a specific feature or features that are not built-in are needed by a user, there are literally thousands of plugins available to enhance it’s functionality, so there is likely solution already developed for that need – the possibilities are literally limitless!

I will allow these WordPress statistics to speak for themselves:

  1. 50-60% is WordPress’ share of the global CMS market – making it the most popular CMS of them all.
  2. Around 15,886,000 websites on the entire web use it.
  3. 22% of new domains in the US are run with it.
  4. There are approximately 76.5 Million WordPress.com blogs as of 2014. I can only imagine how many there are now.
  5. 123,498,018 total theme downloads in 2014.
  6. Plugins received 1 billion total downloads
  7. Gets more unique visitors than Amazon (126 million per month vs. 96 million per month). 
  8. The number of page views across blogs hosted in the month of April 2016 is 21,518,258,660.
  9. The number of posts published from blogs hosted  in the month of April 2016 is 55,774,245.
  10. Notable WordPress websites includes Jay-Z, Katy Perry, CNN, Forbes, UPS, GM, Ebay, BestBuy, Sony and more.

With statistics like this, why waste your time with Wix, Weebly, Squarespace, Drupal or Joomla?
