WordPress Rules the Technorati Top 100, TypePad Too

Filed as News on January 16, 2009 10:23 am

Pingdom took a look at the Technorati Top 100 blogs to see what blogging platform was the most widely used one. I can’t say I’m the least surprised to see that WordPress finished at the top. Looking at the self-hosted blogs, 27 (ie 27%) run WordPress, 12 rolls on Movable Type, 8 are custom made, and 4 use Drupal. Looking at hosted blog platform, TypePad finishes at the top with 16 blogs, Blogsmith rolls 14, WordPress.com only has 5, and 3 use Blogger. Worth noting is that Gawker Media blogs has their own platform, and it isn’t listed, whereas AOL Weblogs Inc, use Blogsmith.

For even more number crunching and graphs, check out the excellent run-through at the Royal Pingdom blog, including a full list.

    Was Gawker Media originally on MT and changed or just changed the code so much it “cant” be called MT anymore?

    This is not surprise. WordPress is a machine for Search Engines Optimization. It is very easy to configure and gives the best results.
