WordPress captures almost 20% of Market in Website Design

Do you use WordPress for your website needs? If not, it is time to take a hard look at doing just that. According to the latest buzz, WordPress websites are now almost 20% of the total websites now operational globally. 66% of those are in English.

“This is the most graphically and visually appealing WordPress yet” states Matt Mullenweg  in a report from WordCamp, an international gathering of developers. WordPress is now in its 10th year, and it just gets better and better, it seems.

WordPress 3.6 is affectionately known as Oscar. Meaningless trivia, but, what is not meaningless trivia is what it does, and what is in store for the future. The development team at WordPress just celebrated a 10th Anniversary and also got a huge influx of capital to continue expanding. Keeping the Internet safe, helping businesses expand their online presence, and doing business via the web are all continuing to increase in importance. Mobile apps are another reason that WordPress has gained, and is continuing to gain in popularity. WordPress works really well on mobile devices, and, as more and more people are online and mobile, the importance of keeping up to date via an easy interface to mobility continues to increase.

Communication is key in this rapidly changing world, and WordPress is rising as one great communication vehicle for the present and the future.
