WordPress is certainly the best CMS (content Management System) out there which everybody wants to learn. Today, WordPress experts hold value in the eyes of recruiters Worldwide. According to a report by Venture Beat, WordPress now powers 25% of the web. 25% is certainly a serious number which makes it clear that learning WordPress is no exception.
