The annual WordPress user survey is now available.
Here’s your opportunity to take the survey, share your experience with WordPress, and how you use it.
If you use WordPress in any way, whether you’re a:
- Business owner
- Digital marketer
- Content strategist
you’re invited to take the survey.
The survey will be available for six weeks. And it’s available in different languages, including English, French, German, Russian, and Spanish.
It doesn’t take long, the survey says it will take less than 10 minutes to complete.
I finished it in less than five minutes. All responses and IP addresses will be kept anonymous.
Results of the Survey
In the past, annual WordPress survey results were shared at Matt Mullenweg’s State of the Word (SOTW) address at WordCamp US. (Check out past SOTW videos on WordPress.tv.)
I was fortunate to watch the results shared in person from the fourth row at Matt’s State of the Word at WordPress US 2015.
This year, the survey results will be published on the WordPress.org blog.
WordPress 2019 Survey Results
I love learning how people use WordPress, so I was excited to view the 2019 survey results. Especially since it was the first time the survey was available in six different languages.
Here are a few highlights from the 2019 survey results:
- WordPress is overwhelmingly (82%) the preferred platform for professionals for their next website project
- Almost half (48%) of WordPress users say they use it over other platforms because they know it best
- Three-quarters of WordPress professionals use it as a content management system (CMS) compared to 73% in 2016
- Almost half of professionals say it takes 20-60 hours to launch a typical WordPress project
- A little over half of professionals continue to use the Classic editor compared to 44% of users.
- 44% of respondents completed the survey in English, 17% in Spanish, 13% in French
- Over 61% of respondents (3,825) were WordPress professionals
- Europe had the largest number of respondents (62%), followed by Asia at 12% and North America at 10%
Though I know many colleagues have moved to Ghost, Medium, or other platforms, I was surprised to learn only 3% of WordPress professionals are using WordPress as a blogging platform.
