Matt Mullenweg: State of the Word 2011

Wordpress is now being used to power 14.7% of the top 1 million websites in the World, and 22% of all new domain names active in the US are wordpress sites. Downing Street run the Number 10 website on the Wordpress framework.

 

Incredibly, up until a few years ago, only 5% of Wordpress users were using it as a CMS. That is to say, 95% were using Wordpress just as a blogging tool and not using it to actually manage the content on their websites. In 2011, this figure has risen to around 92% - so 92% of Wordpress users are now using it to control the content on their sites.

 

The bulk of my own clients are now on Wordpress-based websites. It's no longer a platform just for blogging - it's a full content-management solution that even the largest corporates are using now.

See the full State of the Word address by Wordpress creator Matt Mullenweg.

Cut down your WordPress database overhead

Cut down your WordPress database overhead | WordPress as a Business Tool | Scoop.it

WordPress saves copies of your content every time you update a page or a post, and auto-save revisions are taken while you are editing content too. These ‘revisions’ can be used to compare changes between 2 different versions, to see who made changes to your content (in a multi-author site), and to restore to a previous version of your content if you have really messed up.

 

But.... if you update your site a lot then your database will become unnecessarily large, which may affect your site performance...
