A data-driven answer to the very fundamental question.
Everyone who has anything to do with web is aware of the fact that WordPress is huge. Recently it has made the headlines as it has reached 30% market share in the entire internet. But what does it mean in terms of actual numbers?
Let’s jump straight into the nitty gritty!
There are over 1.8B websites as of today. This data should be taken with a pinch of salt though, as 60-75% of these are actually just parked domains with generic content. According to W3Tech 30,7% of websites run WordPress (data from March 2018).
If we take all this into account, we can quickly calculate that there is approximately 138M websites relying on WordPress.
