Numbers don’t lie, and over 65% of the global market has chosen WordPress as their CMS of choice. WordPress is so widespread that 25% of all websites globally use WordPress. So what makes WordPress so popular with businesses and developers?

1. WordPress is a free and open source CMS. Feel free to use, edit, or redistribute anything you make! This model of business has allowed a massive WordPress community to form, so it’s easy to get and share new ideas!
