Written by Miranda Miller –
WordPress continues to dominate the content management systems (CMS) market and is currently used by 64.2% of websites that have a CMS, according to data from W3Techs.com.
Shopify is a distant second for June 2022 and accounts for 6.3% of the CMS market.
Wix, Squarespace, and Joomla round out the top five with less than 3.5% market share each.
W3Techs notes that 33.1% of websites do not use any of the content management systems they monitor.
WordPress is therefore used by 43% of all websites, and 64.2% of those with an identifiable CMS.
WordPress Plans To Continue Working On Security, Stability
WordPress shows no signs of slowing down and is currently about five years into a ten-year project that involves rewriting its entire codebase.
In a recent interview, Josepha Haden Chomphosy, Executive Director of WordPress, told SEJ,
“…the next year, as with all of the years in a project like that, is making sure we are still as stable and capable as a CMS as people have come to expect while also still pushing forward with a newer more modern way to manage your content online.”
WordPress rolled out version change Arturo 6.0 this month and within two weeks, 36.2% of WP sites had updated to it.
Roger Montti reported that WordPress shared a proposal for a plugin checker that would improve security and site performance by proactively vetting plugins, as well.
