Survey: WordPress Continue to Dominate Open Source CMS Market

According to water&stone, WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla continue to dominate open source market in 2011 with WordPress clearly leading.

Survey looked at downloads, installations and third-party support.

Downloads a week

  1. WordPress: 640,000
  2. Joomla: 86,000
  3. Drupal: 23,000

Download numbers are really not that accurate, because there are checkouts from repositories and web hosts’ one click installs.

Alexa One Million

  1. WordPress: 53.6%
  2. Joomla: 9.6%
  3. Drupal: 6.4%

BuiltWith Installs

  1. WordPress: 4.2 million
  2. Joomla: 1.7 million
  3. Drupal: 308,000

Books in Print

  1. WordPress: 83 books, 23 released in 2011
  2. Drupal: 64 books, 22 released in 2011
  3. Joomla: 65 books, 13 released in 2011

It’s interesting that Drupal books new releases are so close to WordPress. Maybe that tells about active developer community?
