We all know WordPress is popular. With its free, open-source nature and easy-to-use tools, it’s no wonder that over 65 million sites are using the platform. But did you know WordPress is actually leading the blogging market now?
According to a recent study by Pingdom, WordPress is now number one when it comes to blogging platforms. Out of the Technorati’s list of The World’s Top 100 Blogs, WordPress came out on top with 52%. This is an improvement from their 48% ranking in last years study.
In the ranks are TypePad, Movable Type, Tumblr, Ceros, Drupal, and Google’s Blogger, but none even come close to threatening WordPress’s victory. The biggest competitor is custom designs, with a 12% ranking, but even this isn’t very close to catching up.
