WordPress completely dominates top 100 blogs

WordPress is no doubt a very popular web publishing platform for blogs and other types of websites. But just how popular is it?

We just completed a study and found that WordPress is in use by 48% of the top 100 blogs in the world. This is an increase from the 32% we recorded three years ago.

Other developments since then include that custom blog publishing platforms are more common now, TypePad has all but disappeared from the top 100, Tumblr has made an entrance, and some companies really don’t want to spill the beans about what solutions they use.

Update: Following a comment (see below) we have adjusted the article a bit. TUAW is running BlogSmith, so it has been removed from WordPress self-hosted. TMZ is running CrowdFusion, so it has been removed from BlogSmith, and CrowdFusion added to the list. This bring the total for WordPress to 48.

Digital Humanities Now

Digital Humanities Now est un service en ligne qui édite en temps réel les messages envoyés sur Twitter par des membres de la communauté des digital humanities. Il a pour but de rendre compte de l’actualité (annonces de projets, articles, outils…) sur laquelle pointent les messages.

Développé par le Center for History and New Media (CHNM) de l’université George Mason (Virginie), il agrège de façon entièrement automatique les tweets provenant d’une liste de plus de 350 chercheurs et autres professionnels en digital humanities et domaines connexes. C’est Dan Cohen, créateur de Digital Humanities Now, qui a établit cette liste et a eu ensuite l’idée de l’exploiter en utilisant Twitter Times pour diffuser en ligne l’ensemble des tweets.
