WordPress Sees Increased Use in Top 100 Blogs

There are many blogging platform choices and fully researching and analyzing each can be a little overwhelming, not to mention the management often required after the blog is set up. Luckily, Pingdom has done some research for would-be bloggers and determined what platforms the Top 100 Blogs are using. Not surprisingly, perhaps, they discovered the most popular blogging platform (and Content Management System) is WordPress, a platform for which Liquid Web™ offers fully managed hosting and support.

WordPress increases its domination of the top 100 blogs

Pingdom’s study utilized Technorati’s list of the top 100 blogs and investigated from there to identify the platform in use for each of the sites. This study was also done in 2012 and a comparison between the two sets of data shows WordPress increasing its share of the 100 by four blogs. Custom blog platforms and Drupal come in a distant second and third, respectively.
