Joomla! vs WordPress

November 19th, 2006 No comments


Last Friday, for the first time since maintains its Stats page, Joomla surpassed WordPress as Most visited CMS site. According to Alexa, who provides the data for this stat, Joomla! ranked as the 421st most popular site on the web, while WordPress held the 425th place on the same list.

Alexa computes its traffic rankings by evaluating two parameters, Reach and Page Views. While Reach reflects the number of users who visit that site, Page Views represent the number of pages on the site viewed by those users.

Actually more users are visiting WordPress, but Joomla! is receiving more page views. The composite result is that Joomla! is now the number one in our Most visited CMS site list.

WordPress keeps its first place in our other two stats, Powered by . . . and Most linked CMS site. Of course these stats don’t make any claim of scientific accuracy, they are just intended to entertain our readers.
