    A lot of these sites are using WordPressonly for their blogs, I wonder who is actually using wordpress to run their company websites…

    Hi,
    I current work for Samsung on the web and wish to incorporate WordPress. However, I am curious about the above listing for number 8. Samsung News. I was told “Our corporate hosting policies do not allow any open source applications such as WordPress. We’ve had to have our SDS team actually rebuild entire applications to get around these policies. Right now, your options would be to completely go outside samsung.com (like option 2), or have SDS custom build a blog for you (like http://www.samsungusanews.com).”

    Please clarify or adjust your listing for inaccuracy.

    Thank you,
    Pierre Andre Golde

      Andre,

      Open the Samsungusanews site, and see the source code yourself. The site is using WordPress. Our listing is accurate.

    Great to see. I’ve heard criticism that WordPress can become slow if too many database queries. Doesn’t look as though these sites have a problem.

    Thanks
