The Alexa 1 Million is a list compiled by the Amazon-owned company of the most popular web sites throughout the world. Web developer, Tom Robertshaw has conducted a survey of the platforms that each eCommerce site in the list uses – and Magento proved to be way out in front.
In a total of 35,218 eCommerce web sites included in the survey, almost a quarter (8,087) had favoured Magento above all other platforms available – making it the world’s most popular eCommerce choice. That’s also means 20% more web developers have opted for it since February 2012.
To put this into perspective, Magento’s nearest competitor could only manage a 12% share. You can read more about the survey at http://tomrobertshaw.net/2012/11/october-2012-ecommerce-survey/
Magento’s success is due to the fact that experienced developers like iWeb know it offers so much more functionality and so many features straight ‘out of the box’ – which allows us to offer a faster turnaround to clients. A community of programmers has developed Magento – making it a true open-source application. This means that most of the nuts and bolts programming for the platform has already been taken care of – and we can pass that cost saving on to our clients.
