Web Blog Tools Collection has posted a rather interesting info graphic on the market share and relative strength of the WordPress brand. Contained in the graphic is basically the reason why we’re such fans of WordPress.
We’ve linked the graphic above but encourage everyone to visit the source as well.
The most striking stat here is that out of the top one million websites, a whopping 12.4% run WordPress. That comprises over half of the market for content managed websites. Popularity isn’t always a key indicator of quality, but in this case it certainly is. With open source software, there’s no monetary reason to choose one platform over another. Quality quickly becomes a top metric when the software is free.
