Web development is evolving rapidly, new technologies and frameworks are coming every day. But WordPress is still one of the most popular CMSs around the world.

According to Forbes, there are more than 450 million websites on the internet, out of which 34% of the top 10 million websites are built on WordPress. That makes it a total of 150 million websites powered by WordPress. That is a huge number, isn't it?
According to Builtwith, in March 2018, 23.4% of all websites were built on WordPress, and its number is increasing day by day. In 2011, its growth rate was just 0.2%. It has grown at an exponential rate in the last few years, and still, it has a long way to go.
As per ManpowerGroup's 2019 Talent Shortage Survey, 29% of employers report having difficulty filling jobs due primarily to lack of available talent. And it is expected that by 2024 there will be over 2 million jobs available globally for web designers and wordpress developers.
