Who’s Using WordPress 5 Years Later

In honor of WordPress’s fifth birthday, I’ve surveyed about 6000 blogs to see how many are running WordPress. This is the same group that I queried back in January, when I created a spider that harvested the blogs from all of Technorati’s main blogging categories.

CMS Count Percentage
WordPress 2178 34.3
Unknown 1523 23.98
Blogger 1207 19.01
Typepad 340 5.35
Movable Type 338 5.32
WordPress.com 136 2.14

As you can see, WordPress dominates the known blogging platform world. From the numbers below, it looks as though most active WordPress users are keeping updated.
