Magento’s marketing team just released some heartening news regarding everyone’s favorite open-source platform: as of February 2013 (and according to Tom Robertshaw’s quarterly e-commerce survey), Magento e-commerce continues to be the leading platform among Alexa’s top one million sites. Not only that, but this is their third consecutive year at the top!
For the uninitiated, Alexa is a noted web information authority and analytics database used by many sites to gauge their reach and popularity, both nationally and globally. According to platform signature survey results, Magento e-commerce secured an impressive 26% of Alexa’s top one million users. Moreover, this figure represents a 30% increase in market share year-over-year and it nearly triples the number of sites using the platforms in second and third place.
In greater detail, Magento’s figures are even higher for just the busiest 100K sites, boasting a 28% share, again outstripping second place by a substantial margin. What does Magento have to say about the results?
“Our business keeps growing for one simple reason,” opines founder Roy Rubin. “Our customers are succeeding.”
And there you have it! Can’t get any more direct than that—Magento enables users, and through them reinvents customer expectations for global e-commerce. Here’s to next year!
