WordPress is the technology behind more than half of the world's website. However, when you start digging into most highly-trafficked and complex sites on Alexa's and Webcast's top 100K, Drupal is selected more often. For the top 10K, more than twice as much. These slides describe why.

When to choose Drupal over WordPress

  1. 1. こんにちは ! I’m Michael Cannon.
  2. 2. AXL’s Mobile, Global COO + Open Source Event Photographer
  3. 3. Let’s talk CMS. WordPress + Drupal
  4. 4. WordPress is a common solution for common problems + people. ● Bloggers ● Digital Marketers ● Small Businesses (But mostly bloggers)
  5. 5. Globally, It’s the most popular CMS with the most installs: ● +74 Million Sites ● +42,000 Plugins ● +6 Blog Posts Per Second
  6. 6. How? Two Reasons.
  7. 7. ● Simple Installation ● Many Themes Available ● Easy To Add Features ● Cheap Technical Support #1 Because people say that WordPress is easy, and it’s true.
  8. 8. #2 Because other CMS’s are 2nd class according to uninformed opinions: ● Not As Well Known ● Deemed Alternative ● Less Appeal “Not #1? Not for me.”
  9. 9. But what does #1 mean?
  10. 10. WordPress isn’t #1 for everything. ● Slightly Rigid / Not Flexible ● Least Secure Major CMS ● Characterized As Slow ● Not For Complex Sites (E.g. Least Popular With News Sites) There are other options.
  11. 11. WordPress has Most Installs Drupal has Most Top 1k Alexa Meaning? Popular, high traffic, complex sites use Drupal. And for good reason.
  12. 12. *Alexa ranks, including subdomains * Driesnote, Barcelona 2015
  13. 13. Drupal ● Sophisticated ● Secure + Reliable ● Super Powerful ● Highly Flexible ● Community Driven
  14. 14. But it’s not about Drupal vs. WordPress. It’s about your business needs.
