WordPress continues to lead the Internet, far above the rest of CMS

WordPress usage statistics continue to rise, consolidating its position as the most popular CMS and implanted in the network.

If we review the last Builtwith report WordPress is behind 53% of all Internet, compared to the rest of CMS .

But what is most striking is the decline of other CMS, such as Drupal and Joomla.

Regarding our country, Spain, the implementation of WordPress follows going up. If a few months ago we saw that it was behind 65% of the webs, today that figure goes up to 66% if we add all the versions of the graph.

As for WooCommerce, the software for creating online stores for WordPress, has increased another 1% since the last report, being currently 42% of all e-commerce far above the rest of competitors, and light years away of other CMS.

In this case, again, there are no statistics by country, because there are so many versions that the graph was blurred and made it incomprehensible.

You can be sure that you have chosen the right CMS, because WordPress is the leading CMS and will continue to be so for a long time.

I hope that this blog has helped something in this growth and consolidation, and if not we will keep trying.

The WordPress competition is Wix, not Joomla or Drupal • WordPress Help

Although I acknowledge myself having contributed on occasion, more for having a good time than anything else, to encourage competitiveness between WordPress and other CMS open source like Joomla or Drupal, the reality is that the real competition of WordPress is Wix .

Yes, it is something that you have heard me comment several times lately, that the real competition of WordPress are not Joomla or Drupal, but Wix .

Let's talk about usage statistics

 graph market share WordPress cms 2016

Surely you've seen many rankings and usage statistics but always they are limited to the comparison between open source CMS, they almost never include other CMS like Wix, Weebly, SquareSpace or Jimdo with a great implantation in the market, and predominant in some countries.

do not They are ideal for business, or customizable, often not even expandable or easy to export, but there they are, competing with the same market as WordPress: users who want to make a website on their own easily and quickly. [19659003] In fact, in countries like Spain the CMS implementation statistics, if we do not discriminate against only open source ones, the lead the page constructor of 1 & 1 and Wix and with a huge – huge – implementation of Jimdo.

And, right, WordPress leads the market share of open source CMS but in implementation it still can not compete with those previously cited, and I doubt it will do so in a while. Why? …

What open source CMS can compete right now with ads like this?

Visual layouters and 50% share market

 divi 3 react [19659003] Every day I read criticisms of the visual formatters it does not matter if it is Avada Visual Composer or Divi especially by WordPress programmers " guardians of essences ".

It's a debate that takes me back to the beginnings of open-source CMS, when lifelong HTML programmers criticized the users and developers of CMS like the programmers / dumb users who were filling in code crap with the network.

And look where you go! curiously only a few years later, the same defenders of the CMS today get great, using the same arguments as the old programmers, against the visual layout, shortcodes, and even the use of plugins . [19659003]  wordpress plugins

Or have you never heard that about " I'd rather use code than plugins "? Let's see …

Is it that the plugins are not code? Is it that the plugins write them useless? Do you feel yourself a better programmer than those who have developed plugins such as WooCommerce, BuddyPress or Contact Form 7? And if so, why do not I see your plugins in the WordPress.org plugins directory? Or is it that you keep your wonderful codes just for you?

Fortunately the vast majority of the great programmers release their codes in plugins that we can all use to give life to our webs created with WordPress, but still many nonsense is read.

Much of the success of WordPress is due to the plugins but above all to the creators of those codes that, instead of saving them for their clients or friends, they decide to release them every day for the WordPress community . Does that make you poor? Not at all, those who adapt to the times find new business models to exploit their free codes such as premium utilities, additional services, extension plugins, etc., etc.

Sorry to give me a bit dry, but is that one listens and reads so many things out there that I open the flesh of listening to nonsense, many times against the culture of open source, and even common sense.

If #WordPress you want to reach the 50% market share must compete with Wix or 1 & 1 Click to tweet

If WordPress wants to reach 50% market share it must compete with Wix or the web creator of 1 & 1 because that is what the market is looking for, your client.

And yes, you can isolate yourself in your cave without tabs or external calls to JavaScripts, but solution developers exist because clients want solutions, not those that the developer wants , but the that the user needs and wants .


And yes, the CMS have promoted users "do it yourself" but Is that bad? Is it perverse that today an SME can create its own website to start your business without investing thousands of euros before you even start? I think not, and open source CMS like WordPress have contributed to this, offering a free, easy-to-use, free web creation solution

attacking Wix – I think rightly – to steal WordPress code or even accusing them of pretending to resemble WordPress, alluding to that initially called WixPress .

In case you want to follow the soap opera, then the Wix CEO answered Matt indicating that yes, they have taken WordPress code for their mobile editor but that then they released it on GitHub, and incidentally, the stone that WordPress advertised as a blog creation tool to later change to a web creation platform, imitating Wix, was released.

Come on, a joke father, but which denotes where the war is going, whoever wins each specific battle.

Another interesting fact is the approach that is being given to the default themes of WordPress, the famous Twentyloquesea more and more focused on the corporate client and less on blogs.

But WordPress is better!

<p> Of course, <strong><a href= WordPress is a thousand times better than Wix or the web creator of 1 & 1, Weebly and others do we review in what stands out?

  • SEO
  • Open source
  • Free plugins [19659049] Free themes
  • Freedom
  • Extensible
  • Easy to program
  • Scalable

But it turns out that that's not the first thing the user who wants a website wants, what he wants is this … [19659003]

And can WordPress compete with this?

Yes, well …

The future of WordPress goes through the visual layout

<p> For WordPress to truly compete in the market of web creation <strong> should be up to the web creators of companies like Wix or 1 & 1 </strong> and, from there, stand out with its many other virtues, which are the ones that really make it special </p>
<p> And we, WordPress lovers, must offer <strong> the best of both worlds: an interactive, visual and powerful user experience, and a clean, open and scalable code </strong>. </p>
<p> How not, it is necessary <strong> to fight for the standardization of the <em> shortcodes </em>with projects like <a href= ShortCake to avoid l lack of control of shortcodes now, but you do not have to face the future, but confront it and be part of it.

I bet for the future of WordPress but it inevitably happens because becomes the best application to create websites easily and quickly, with a visual interface for all audiences, with a robust, flexible and open code, created by the best programmers in the world who constantly recycle to offer the best possible technologies with the client in his target.

And you? Do you prefer a WordPress only for advanced users or that suits all types of users? I think that's the big question.

Evolution of WordPress

<p> First of all I want to clarify that I I consider it quite objective and that my opinion is based on experience. <strong> We have each had different experiences and the difference of opinions is valid </strong>. </p>
<p> I started in the world of CMS with <strong> PHP-Nuke </strong> per se mple hobby and with the passage of time I stumbled upon Joomla 1.0 (PHP) almost at the same time I did it with DotNetNuke 4.0 (ASP). </p>
<p> In the company where I work we do it with Windows servers, opting for a <strong> CMS ASP </strong> that works with SQL Server as <strong> DotNetNuke </strong> that serves as a content management platform for the client, which is why <strong> I had to adapt to this CMS while on my own I wanted to continue studying and working with a CMS that worked under the philosophy OpenSource </strong>. </p>
<p> <strong> At that time Joomla and Drupal were in full swing </strong> being WordPress the strongest candidate for Blogs, so I finally decided by Joomla for being a friendlier CMS for the end user despite the comments (very successful) that told me that <strong> with Joomla sooner or later I would run into a wall difficult to jump </strong>I did not know what they referred exact amente until I hit that wall: the Back-End is very complete, allows to create user roles, configure a single theme per page, indicate in which pages or categories we want to show a certain widget etc, but <strong> the Front-End is where that wall was, where the real problem was: You can only modify it by CSS if you do not want to go into the heart of the system </strong>unlike WordPress where from the same Theme you can do practically everything. [19659003] <a href=  joomla_backend "src =" https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/joomla_backend-500x430.jpg "width =" 500 "height =" 430 "srcset =" https : //ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/joomla_backend-500x430.jpg 500w, https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/joomla_backend-174x150.jpg 174w, https : //ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/joomla_backend-435x375.jpg 435w, https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/joomla_backend-280x240.jpg 280w, h ttps: //ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/joomla_backend.jpg 559w "sizes =" (max-width: 500px) 100vw, 500px "/> </a> </p>
<p> There are different plugins that you help to solve this problem halfway, but we return to the same thing, <strong> is not about showing the contents as the Joomla team says or the plugin developers say, if not show them as the end user wants </strong>this is a minor detail for anyone but him. </p>
<p> This is when the important updates arrive, mainly the 1.5 where I expected to see a real breakthrough, and although I improve the appearance of the Back-End and the structure looked something simpler to understand you actually realized that it was the same, exactly the same, <strong> without any real improvement other than a simple rearrangement and some security patches </strong>the last straw was when versions 1.6, 1.7 and 2.0 … </p>
<p> That's when I definitely decided to throw the t oalla with this system <strong> Again it was the same! </strong> had rearranged and visually improved the Back-End <strong> but where were the novelties apart from the typical security corrections? </strong> the inconveniences remained Throughout the different versions, mainly the handling of loops, very limited if you do not dare to modify the installation of Joomla and without the possibility of creating different loop styles beyond what you can and Joomla allows you to do for CSS. </p>
<p> All this was beginning to frustrate me and <strong> without a solution that fulfilled 100% with my expectations I decided to try other alternatives </strong>. </p>
<p> <a href=  drupal-backend "src =" https: //ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/drupal-backend-500x255.jpg "width =" 500 "height =" 255 "srcset =" https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads /2013/07/drupal-backend-500x255.jpg 500w, https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/drupal-backend-28 0x142.jpg 280w, https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/drupal-backend-435x222.jpg 435w, https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/ drupal-backend-560x285.jpg 560w, https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/drupal-backend.jpg 574w "sizes =" (max-width: 500px) 100vw, 500px "/> </a> </p>
<p> <strong> The second option was Drupal </strong>with which I have to admit I do not have so much experience because from the beginning I found an extremely rigid content manager in version 5. </p>
<p> Yes well <strong> gave more freedom when developing a Theme </strong> – which is what I mainly dedicate myself to – at the time of <strong> managing the contents was extremely complicated </strong> for the market sector that I was addressing , which is the small and medium business without too much computer knowledge, the business model that we manage is to give the client something that they themselves can update and modify without need to hire a professional or pay an extra service, for it could not present them <strong> a CMS where changing the structure or adding a simple entry would be so complicated and they would have to resort to us to update their page </strong>. </p>
<p> Almost at the time of having started in Drupal, Drupal 6 arrived, and with it a new confusion: I could not say if it got better or worse. </p>
<p> It brought with it their respective security patches, a new interface for both the Back-End and for the Front-End being this part especially confusing because I did not feel that they improved or simplified it, I simply felt that they changed it, that it looked different without more, <strong> it did not bring improvements for the end user </strong>its community is not especially remarkable – at least in number – the same as the number of plugins, which even today remains the most reduced compared to its main competition. </p>
<p> <a href=  king wordpress [1945903] 7] </a> </p>
<p> <strong> It was then that I stumbled upon WordPress </strong>so far a classic of the platforms for Blogs, my luck was that when I started working with him <strong> I had become an authentic CMS </strong>its evolution was real: they added the possibility of creating personalized menus and with it the possibility of creating advanced structures, the default insertion of outstanding images, <strong> absolute freedom when creating your template and show a different loop by category, and in each new version this was increasingly simple </strong>leaving aside the programming to give way to a simple method based on hierarchies in which you only have to change the name of the file to WordPress recognizes it automatically (for example: loop.php, loop-tag.php, loop-search … for those who continue to handle a clear loop structure this …) </p>
<p> Finally, <strong> it was wonderful to see that in each new version added improvements for both the end user and programmers </strong> that we work behind, removing some issues that are still pending now if it was worth waiting to see what new features each new version incorporated, and although some were better and others not so drastic in all this time I have seen how new file managers are incorporated to work faster with images, native galleries, important improvements in the API as already mentioned and of course, also visual improvements in the Back-End so that nobody complain that WordPress is the only one that does not … </p>
<p> Conste, I do not say that they are bad, it is not plan to give them land for free, <strong> the point is that being objective and realistic the CMS that has evolved the most these years has been WordPress with a huge difference, so much so that nowadays it is the most widely used CMS in the world </strong>. </p>
