Plugin Trends: January 28, 2021

A big week for Mailchimp for WordPress with a half million new downloads! Certainly the standout plugin of the week.

In the pit of despair we see a dearth of bland and generic keywords. Keywords that carry no special meanings and thus no special interest. A whole lot of regression to the mean on these items.

Holding steady as a rock we see WooCommerce dominating the WordPress plugin market. It appears as though the main reason for using WordPress comes from the availability of a free shopping cart to go with the free CMS.

You can’t argue with free.
