Google Trends always shows us some fantastic results. I thought I’d just have a check with WordPress against some its web design platform competitors; Joomla, Drupal, Dreamweaver and Adobe Muse and take a look at those results.
It’s probably a little unfair to compare content management systems against drag drop development tools such as Muse and Dreamweaver, as these can be cooperatively used with WordPress and other CMS such as Drupal and Joomla, but it definitely shows developers have steered away from Joomla and Drupal which was very much evidential towards late ’12.
But check this out. Compare the following website builders Wix, Weebly, Moonfruit with WordPress:
WordPress still dominates over website builders. It’s true. Website builders are improving over time, and so far so good it’s providing a DIY solution for website owners with little to no coding skill, just like WordPress, to develop their own websites. But right now, and to the relief of most professional developers, Wordpress still dominates the web design field and is still going strong.
The slight declination in traffic shows how some people are turning away from WordPress, to easier to host and set-up website builders such as weebly, Wix and moonfruit.
