In its own blog on blogs (metablog?), Web monitoring company Pingdom is reporting the results of a study with news that WordPress is used by 48% of the top 100 blogs worldwide. The group increased that number 32% since its last study in 2009, Pingdom said. Further, WordPress founder Matt Mullenweg is looking to expand adoption rates moving forward.
The last few years we’ve really focused on both the usability and flexibility of WordPress, which has resulted in accelerating growth in both big and small sites. I expect even higher adoption among the largest sites and blogs over the next year,” Mullenweg said.
