We build all our websites using WordPress – the free open source content management system (CMS) – that is revolutionising the way websites are built all over the world every day. We made the decision to focus exclusively on WordPress powered websites in 2009 and are confidient we’ve made the right choice for both ourselves and our clients.
Web design and development is of course a very rapidly changing field, so we devote a considerable part of our working time each week to keeping up with the latest trends happening and learning these new skills.
One of the tools we often use in selecting which web design and development tools to learn is Google Trends. This, we’ve found, gives a ready guide on how many people are using alternative web technologies and which tools are growing strongly.
In the following Google Trends charts we’ve compared WordPress to other Content Management Systems to show how WordPress is increasingly dominating the building of websites.
