65% of the websites in Spain are created with WordPress

I am pleased to share the new WordPress usage statistics which already shows, among other things, that 30% of the world's websites are made with WordPress that's nothing.

Using WordPress in the world

Around the world wide, according to BuiltWith statistics WordPress is behind 30% of the websites and that does not include the WordPress.com sites, which would add a few points to this graph.

30% of the websites in the world are created with #WordPress Click to tweet

The next open source CMS in the ranking is Drupal, with 7% implementation, followed by Joomla far, with a poor 1%.

WordPress is still the king of the CMS and uploading.

Use of WordPress in Spain

Regarding the statistics of use d e WordPress in Spain the impact is even greater, since 40% of the websites in Spain are created with WordPress in its latest version .

And that's not surprising, because if we add to the figure the percentage of implementation of WordPress in other versions (4.7 and earlier), the implementation of WordPress in Spain up to 65% in our country.

65% of websites in Spain are created with #WordPress Click to tweet

Use of WooCommerce in the world

Regarding the use of the main plugin for creating online stores for WordPress , WooCommerce, its worldwide implantation is of no less than 41% .

41% of the online stores in the world are created with #WooCommerce Clic para tweet

Far behind are Shopify (6%) and Magento (4%).

Note : There is no WooCommerce usage statistics by country, as the BuiltWith team explained to me after contacting them to ask about it, it was practically impossible to discriminate the versions and installations, so you will not find it in the statistics by country, something that, in passing, it clearly blurs the result of the other systems.

The best statistics plugin • WordPress Help

Look I've tried statistics plugins for WordPress but not so long ago I found the best of all, for various reasons .

I'm talking about Google Analytics Dashboard for WP which you'll find in my profile favorites from WordPress.org .

 Google Analytics Dashboard for WordPress

Initially it might seem like another plugin for to integrate Google Analytics into WordPress which is not a bad beginning, and I mean … [19659003] The main thing when deciding on a statistics plugin in WordPress is do not choose one that stores information in your database but it is integrated and, at most, shows statistics on your WordPress desktop

Just imagine the amount of information ation that stores a plugin of these to realize that you must flee from this type of plugins as the plague: visits, page views, permanence, bounce rate, countries, references, clicks, etc, etc, etc.

Returning to our beloved plugin, in principle its primary function is to connect your website with your Google Analytics account without having to add the tracking code manually and you will tell me " Fuck Fernando, if this you already do it with All in one SEO Pack and other gazillion plugins! "

And you're right, but even this does it very well, because instead of having to copy the tracking code, or put your ID publisher of Google Analytics, the plugin connects to your Google account and asks for authorization .

The process, after activating the plugin, would be like this:

  1. You go to new menu Google Analytics -> General settings and click on the button Authorize plugin which will take you to a new window with a red link that says: Get access code . You do this and it takes you to the login page of your Google account where, after asking for your permission to use your account, Google will offer you a verification code. You copy it.
  2. You go back to the previous page of the plugin and you paste the code and you hit the button Save the access code .
  3. That's it, the next screen offers you a list of your added sites to Google Analytics, and detects the current one, being able to configure each and every one of the aspects of the follow-up in the different menus of the plugin configuration, by the way in Spanish, which always helps. Especially delicate is the button called Block selection so that no administrator can see the statistics of other sites in your account.

Now you should take a look around the different menus of the plugin, with special emphasis on these settings:

  • Backend settings: Define who can see the statistics and I recommend activating all the views.
  • Frontend settings: I recommend activating the visualization of statistics on the web, very interesting.
  • Tracking code : Important settings to configure each of the tracking aspects of Google Analytics, as you would do in your own administration console. Interesting is to activate download tracking, affiliate links, activate the retargeting and link to your Adsense account if you use it.

Ok, that's it, and now what? [19659003] The main thing is that your website is connected to Google Analytics, but the plugin offers you not to have to visit the Google Analytics administration to track your traffic because offers several ways to see your statistics, much better than any other plugin of this type I have tried .

The plugin adds a widget to your desktop, in which you can choose to visualize your statistics …

  • Real-time
  • Today
  • Yesterday [19659012] Last 7 days
  • Last 14 days
  • Last 30 days
  • Last 90 days
  • One year
  • Three years

And for each period you will see …

  • Sessions
  • Unique users
  • Organic searches cas
  • Page views
  • Rebound Percentage
  • Location
  • Pages
  • References
  • Searches
  • Traffic
  • Technology

Completed eh? But the thing does not end there, it turns out that you can see the statistics of each entry and page from where?

  • On the screen of administration of entries / pages, through an icon that adds to the side of each entry. [19659012] On your website, thanks to a new element in the WordPress administration bar

 analytics statistics per backend entry

In short, that is the best statistics plugin for WordPress that I know because …

  1. It does not store information in the database.
  2. It's Google Analytics statistics, the market standard.
  3. Does not require manual code insertion
  4. Provides detailed statistics on the WordPress desktop.
  5. Provides statistics for each entry.

Did you know? Do you know any better yet?

Google Analytics statistics on the WordPress desktop • WordPress Help

I recently decided to leave Jetpack . And something I liked about this superplugin was to see the statistics directly from the desktop. And looking for some alternative, I came across Google Analytics Dashboard for WP a wonder that shows the reports of the popular Google statistics service easily and without having to fight with complicated configurations.

Also, it allows you to insert the statistics in pages, entries and / or widgets. A wonder.

 Real-time statistics on any page.

Real-time statistics on any page.

The truth is that I've been using it for a week, and it did not cause any problems. It also allows users to be excluded from the statistics, in order to have more accurate reports. Google Analytics is, for many, the best service of its kind. And combined with WordPress, even better.

How to comply with Spanish cookies legislation

 law cookies españa

A few days ago the first fines have fallen to two Spanish websites for violating the legal rules on cookies . The fines have been of 3,000 and 500 euros respectively, but could have amounted to the not insignificant figure of 30,000 euros .

According to the sentence one of the sites, ] created with WordPress (although it confuses wordpress.org with wordpress.com), it used JetPack cookies ( _qca ), SlimStat (from the statistics module) and Quancast ( mc ]).

Of all this, some plugin warns us like Cookilian that we already saw in the article of how to comply with the cookie legislation in WordPress and it would not hurt install it and check the cookies that are on your site and create a page that adequately reports them, mostly to not get you upset.

What are the implications of these first two sentences? I personally think that it sends very bad messages …

The first thing is that, with all the big companies, and all of the IBEX, ignoring the flagrant legislation of cookies, that the Data Protection Agency breastfeed with two small companies I do not know if qualify it as a way to get noticed by setting an example against the little ones who can not or know how to defend themselves well, or as a warning to sailors to scare, again, the little ones.

Meanwhile, what is achieved is that every small business that tries to prosper on the Internet end up closing or moving your business to another country where they do not get so great with something that should be corrected with a software solution, by the hand of Microsoft, Google or Apple, then with a line code could perfectly block cookies unless expressly approved and for all, in their browsers.

But no, here we are more asshole and stupendous than anyone and we are dedicated to fuck the Easter to our SMEs to put obstacles in the way of entrepreneurs, to prevent electronic commerce from emerging and being able to give employment.

It is true that the laws are to comply with them but also administrations have the responsibility and the duty to make life easier for their managers, finding the best solution to the problems that arise, and something that could be arranged so easily by talking to the big software companies, instead is attacked the small webs that subsist with scarce penalties, but much easier to penalize with fines that can not be escaped due to lack of legal cabinets that make the processes "sleep" or even win them.

What they get is that something that should be good: guarantee the Internet user's right to privacy, end up being a brake on that same freedom, not to mention the flowering of new opportunities on the web.

So you know, if you're not a big untouchable multinational, you better prepare your website to comply with the cookie legislation. Do not get pimp because you see that the most important newspapers and portals do not comply, they will not touch them, but you do.

That you have not yet gotten to work to comply with the legislation of cookies? and get to work:

  2. Guide to comply with the law of cookies in 5 steps of Adigital (pdf )

Unique visitors in WordPress.com statistics … and almost in JetPack • WordPress Help

You just left, and I'm sure you have not missed it if you use JetPack, a new functionality of WordPress.com statistics: unique user view .

So far, WordPress.com statistics (and those of Jetpack, which are the same) only showed visitors that is, that if someone visits your website and sees 3 pages, they count 3 visits, which is also called " pageviews " or even " impressions ".

The incorporated novelty also shows the statistic in unique visitors that is, that the previous visitor would only count a single visit, even if he saw 10 pages of your website.

 jetpack statistics notice with unique users

Is it better, is it worse ?, it is different . The unique user shows a degree of loyalty of your site, although it has its snag, because there are times when many different users, but using the same IP (universities for example) will only be shown as a single user. On the other hand, the page views, do not really say how many " people " have visited your site, but how many pages of your website have caused interest in visitors.

Personally I usually look more at the pages views, and specifically in the pages viewed by user, because it indicates the degree of loyalty and " link building " internal to your site, or in other words, the degree of interest you have generated in the visitors to see more pages from the one they came from search engines, shared links or whatever.

But, well, all statistics are good, and the more the better the more information you get for optimize your website, so welcome is the new feature.

The system is not as powerful as Google Analytics, nor does it offer a new listing, simply when you hover your mouse over the bar of the visitor's chart. day shows a more detailed notification, where we will see, in addition to the page views, unique users and pages per user which I mentioned before. It's not perfect but it's pretty good.

Here you can see the difference of the same day seen on JetPack and WordPress.com :

WordPress download statistics by version • WordPress Help

If you are curious, and you want to know which version of WordPress is the most popular, there is a page specialized in WordPress.org that shows you in a graphic which of the versions of WordPress to date is the most popular.

Of course, even with the growing popularity of WordPress, right now the most popular branch, with over 51% of the global downloads is the 3.x version. Did you doubt?

As a curiosity (or not), we are also offered graphics of the most popular PHP and MySQL installed versions, in which they gain 5.2 PHP and 5.1 MySQL.

WordPress: more than 50 million sites

The statistics from WordPress.com have always received an update, and now also include WordPress hosted installations and, the figure is surprising, as it shows that between WordPress. com and WordPress.org right now there are more than 50 million sites using WordPress .

What do you think about being part of this HUGE community?

The entry WordPress: more than 50 million sites published it first Fernando Tellado in WordPress Help . Do not copy content, do not say anything good about you to your readers.

Show Google that your blog deserves to be first!

 prove to google that your blog deserves to be first

In our previous article we have reviewed some basic techniques for improve positioning from our wordpress blog on Google . Now we will review another very important point to continue optimizing our blog to the search engines.

I see very often that many bloggers publish all the content of their posts directly on the Home page …
Serious error for your positioning in Google!


Suppose your post is interesting and draws your user's attention … This will enter the Home of your blog, observe that there is information that interests you, read the article and possibly close the browser and continue your work day (glad to have received the knowledge that you have given). And your only benefit would be an additional visit to your statistics.

Let me tell you that this is not as beneficial as it seems, it could even be a disadvantage. The reason is that this user will increase the bounce rate of your blog (an SEO factor very considered by Google when making your search rankings).

The recommendation is to use the excerpts from articles in Home (three or four lines describing the content of your article). In this way, when the user enters Home, they will see only the title and extract of the article. You will notice that it is information that interests you and will press "click" to see the full article. This click is very valuable in the eyes of Google, since it is a sign of interest to the content of your blog (a sign of interest emitted neither more nor less than by a user, the main objective of Google).

If a high percentage of your users "click" on the excerpts or internal links of your blog, speak of interest and satisfaction in the content that you publish. Therefore, you have a very favorable point for Google to want to show your content to users and make you climb positions in your ranking 🙂  Google Analytics Bounce Percentage

And how does Google realize if the user clicked at least once on my site?

If you use Google Analytics (which is very likely because we all love this wonderful statistics service) you are giving full permission to Google to see and analyze the behavior of your users within your blog.

(see image on the right)

The percentage of bounce is specified in the start screen of Google Analytics, an indicator of the importance that this parameter has for Google no?

I do not want this article to motivate to uninstall Google Analytics … On the contrary, we must work to gain clicks on the links of our blog, reducing our bounce rate and climbing positions in the Google rankings 🙂

Bit.ly in WordPress

I've been testing a little plugin wonder on my personal blog for a few days, offering shortened links through the service of Bit.ly .

Once the plugin is installed, it is called WP Bit.ly you just have to go through the configuration page to add the data of your Bit.ly account, and if you do not have it, this is the moment. You just have to enter your username and the API key you will find here .

The next thing is to press – without fear – the button called "Get shortlinks" and, after a wait that will depend on how many published, if you go to your Bit.ly account you will see that a lot of links have been created (here my example ), one for each published entry, that you can easily share … and short, also to follow the statistics of each link, one of the great virtues of Bit.ly.

Not only that, but also in the editor, in the button "Get short link", you will have the link shortened by bit.ly . Come on, great.

Do you want more ?, then you can use the shortcode of the plugin to show the short links in your posts and thus make it easier for people to share them. You can do it in two ways …
