In 2010 I created the first version of the eCommerce survey. It takes a list of sites, e.g. the Alexa Top 1 Million and then a spider visits the homepage of every site. It passes the HTML page through a detection engine built up of signatures that recognise various ecommerce platforms.
In the media
I am very grateful for the coverage that the results and analyses have received in conferences and the media.
The latest updates to the survey and more can be found under Hivemind Research.
