Is Wordpress a Superior Publishing Platform?

Yes. If you're a regular at BlogCraving, you know that we are huge Wordpress fans. Guilty as charged.

However, we are constantly reminded why it is a superior publishing platform.

Wordpress VIP LogoFor example, 15% of the top 1 million sites on the web are powered by the Wordpress platform.  At first glance, that sounds like a big fluffy number.  Stop for a second and take a look at the caliber of publishers using the platform, and you will see it is not all fluff.

Publishers using Wordpress: NBC Sports, CNN, TED, TechCrunch (AOL), Time, Wall Street Journal, CBS Radio, CBS Local, and the LA Times...just to name a few.

Recently, Wordpress also announced its Partners program for companies that want to build Wordpress ready versions of their products into the WP platform.  The Wordpress team then certifies these vendors as "partners" basically saying that the code is compliant with the WP core.

The fact that other digital and web companies are building specific instances of their products for the Wordpress community says something about the scale and quality of WP.

Getting to Partner status with Wordpress is no joke either.  Their developers run through every single line of code to make sure that there is nothing being committed that could endanger the health of a WP site.

Wordpress FTW.
