    Default 48% of all CMS websites are WordPress, and other stats

    According to builtWith.com WordPress makes up 48% of all websites online who use a CMS, a 7% (+1,149,956 domains) increase in usage.
    Even more interesting Squarespace (+151,867) , Wix (+154,783) and Ghost are also seeing a market share increase.

    Overall, a crap load of people are building new websites over all. 328,852,063 Domains were indexed online this quarter.

    Well, it's official everybody. Wordpress has won the CMS war. I doubt there's gonna be another script that beats Wordpress unless something drastic happens.

    I'd love to applaud that, but things change quickly. The cheap do it yourself CMS market is coming on strong. The tools are better, and they're easier to use.
    Site builders like Go Daddy and others are taking a hit. But you can't discount the big ad push that Squarespace and Wix are doing right now.

    I think when the dust settles WP will continue to be what "Professionals" use, and people who need more control and function than what pre-packaged solutions offer, but for the new start up, Mom and Pop who just need a 2-3 page presence with a couple of images and a contact form...people like me have pretty much lost that market.

    If you look at Top 10K vs 100K vs 1M, you'll notice that Drupal takes a bigger chunk (14.38%, 9.79%, 5.62% respectively) the higher up in tier you go. But that's because we build things like Whitehouse.gov and Weather.com.

    Of course, one can argue that Drupal is wrongly classified there since it's not a CMS, but rather a framework used to build a CMS.

    .
    The stats are overall CMS usage, worldwide. If Drupal isn't a CMS then you can't say it has a bigger market share of CMS's, right?

    Here are the Drupal usage stats according to the same website:

    GM and Nike are Adobe CQ. Speaker.gov is Drupal (as are almost all of the the House and Senate sites).

    I'm just noting that WP and everyone else shrinks as you get into higher tiers.

    I don't think anyone ever suggested that complex sites are run on stock WordPress.
    No one is trying to take anything away from Drupal, but WordPress holds it's own in the Corporate and Government websites.

    For instance, The Library of Congress website is on WordPress.

    You can actually see which departments and government websites use what.

    True, but it could always end up like free blogs did. They used to be big too with Tumblr, Blogger, etc. coming in. Now, no one cares. Everyone either goes to Wordpress.com or hosts it themselves on, you guessed it, Wordpress. You never know, it could always become what 90% of sites are made up of, or, someone will invent a way to make powerful custom scripts without programming knowledge or very little programming knowledge, enabling people to just use their own.

    As fast as things change on the internet I will be surprised if WordPress is "The Thing" a decade from now. It wasn't much over a decade ago that FrontPage was "The Thing" That wasn't much after things like hit counters, laying out web sites with tables and Frames were all hot.

    I have no idea what the next better mousetrap will be but there will be one.

    Maybe someone will invent a thing where you put it on your head, you imagine what it would look like, then the computer designs it for you
