Our curiosity was driven to ask ourselves: What percentage out of these 5,000 fast-growing companies use WordPress?
You may read more than one report describing the increasing popularity of WordPress vs other CMS or, have a look to the infographic created by Mike Wallagher with some surprising statistics about WordPress Usage.
- WordPress is used by 60.3% of all the websites that use a Content Management System. This is 24.2% of all websites, and
- a year ago, the WordPress usage was 22.6% of all websites.
However, the question is: does WordPress have the same market share in the companies from the Inc. 5000 list? That is, are 1,200 (out of 5,000) using WordPress?
Well, after analyzing all the data we’ve discovered that the numbers are quite different! Taking a look at the data of 2015, more than 43% of the fastest-growing companies’ websites from the 2015 Inc. 5,000 are in WordPress. To be more precise, there are 2,172 companies that use WordPress to power their websites. And, in my opinion, most of these companies have awesome and gorgeous websites!
In our Nelio A/B Testing blog, we published some posts showing the best WordPress websites in different industries from the list of last year. For instance, take a look at these Awesome WordPress Sites of the Fastest-growing Marketing Agencies.
Today I want to look at the first 100 companies in this list and show you the websites of those using WordPress. Do you know how many of them are in WordPress? 42.
By taking a look at their websites, you may understand why they are so high in the raking and, if your dream is to be included soon in the @inc5000 list, you can not miss them!
