I’ve been thinking for a while that it would be interesting to look at the sites in the Alexa Top 1 Million and determine how many of them were using Magento. This weekend I finally got around to writing a script to investigate this. I looked for a few ways to identify Magento and then used some basic regular expressions to match content. I did the same for osCommerce to see how the results compared.
In total, I found:
- 3262 Magento
- 59 Magento Enterprise
- 3128 osCommerce. </ul> Magento has the slight lead and I would expect, if it follows the trend, for the gap to increase over the next year. Here are a few sites that I found to be powered by Magento:
- web-blinds.com (Enterprise)
- <a href="http://www.modelzone.co.uk rel="nofollow"">modelzone.co.uk</a> (Enterprise)
- <a href="http://www.giro.com/ rel="nofollow"">giro.com</a> (Enterprise)
N.B. This is an early revision of the Magento tracking script, but I intend on re-running it in the coming months to identify changes in market share.
