Magento Connect May 2013: Guess Who Jumped Twice Higher?

Hello, dear Magento Connect statistics fans!

June changed May, and summer followed spring. What thoughts has a new season brought? Dreaming about holidays, sunbathing, beaches, traveling, picnics or just idleness? All these ideas are pleasant and rest is very important for everybody. But all in good time, and now let’s turn to Magento Connect May Statistics.

In May there were no serious additional factors that could influence the growth of extensions in subcategories. Nevertheless the results look a bit unexpected. The leaders are familiar to the regular readers of our monthly Magento Connect Statistics reports. But the quantitative changes can be surprising. They can be explained as after-effect of great changes that were brought to the Magento Connect extension marketplace in February. But it’s time to look at numbers.

Magento Connect March-April 2013: Three Big Changes at the Magento Marketplace You Shouldn’t Miss

Good day, ladies and gentlemen! Two spring months have already passed and May is outdoors. The approach of summer is felt in the air. Day by day the weather brings us more sunshine and heat. But sometimes it’s unpredictable as well as Magento Connect statistics.

Several big changes were brought to the Magento Connect extension marketplace and we can’t skip them while making our regular analysis. Wonder what are they?

The FIRST CHANGE is the delisting of outdated extensions on Connect. The removal of modules was based on compatibility with recent versions of Magento, and frequency of download/referral. As a result of “cleaning up”, the total quantity of extensions for all categories reduced from 11,095 (February) to 10,466 (March). 5% of extensions were delisted. This change influenced the statistics for March.

Magento Connect February 2013: What Do We End Up With This Winter Season?

Winter is gone and spring is already here. The weather is getting nicer, daylight slowly increases, animals come out of their winter hideouts… March, originally the first month of the Roman calendar, takes over the reigns. It’s a perfect time for new beginnings, the rebirth of nature and February Magento Connect statistics.

In February we can observe the growth of extensions for the following four categories.

• Category & Product Page Enhancements (+ 21)

This leadership is not accidental. Website is the face of any company: its usability and visibility are among the top reasons making visitors stay longer. No surprise that development companies pay much attentions to the extensions aimed at attracting clients and maximizing potential sales.

The most popular extensions in this category allow adding information tabs and banners on home and product pages, reducing server load and increasing your conversion rate.

A curious thing – this category is a constant dominator throughout the past and present years. Developers are really stuck to it, aren’t they? 😉

Magento Connect January 2013 Statistics

Hi there!

Here’s the first of “Magento Connect Statistics” reports in 2013. Let’s compare the results through the perspective of one year period: 2012 vs. 2013. I chose January as the month under report and the most popular categories as the criteria for growth.


The overall growth is approximately 170 extensions a year/14 extensions a month, except for the Category’s page – as you can see, the increase is 394/33 respectively.

The new extensions ratio per month is quite big, so it is fair to say that merchants are provided with a considerable number of tools to make their business grow and progress.

Magento Connect November Statistics

Hello!

Sometimes a single letter or its place in a word changes the whole meaning of a notion. I’m 100 percent sure it happened to you at least once: you type Magento in Google search and you get…the pictures of a strange creature in an odd-looking helmet and special costume. Yes, I mean Magneto, the central villain of the X-Men comics.

So this was my misprint of the day. Don’t know why but I decided to know more about this fictional character. To my surprise, I found out that Magneto was ranked number 1 by IGN’s Top 100 Comic Book Villains list! Sounds familiar, huh? Yes, the same thing is about Magento who’s being the well-recognized leader (not villain, sure) in the world of e-commerce.

So this time I will spell it correctly. Please, welcome Magne..oops! Magento Connect statistics for your pleasure.

Magento Connect October Statistics

What ho fellow Magento ladies and gentlemen!

Earlier this day I thought that this piece of the unstoppable story about statistics would be done in Jeeves & Wooster style. And I did it. For those who are unfamiliar with the name, well, it is a series of books by P.G Wodehouse (who, incidentally, had a birthday in October) about an English gentleman and his valet in the entourage of 1920’s Great Britain. Not quite sure if this brilliant writer knew anything about Magento or e-commerce, but anyway, let’s be indulgent to classics 🙂

Bertie Wooster: Jeeves, I have to make one thing crystal clear.
Jeeves: Yes, sir?
Bertie Wooster: I am not one of those fellows who become absolute slaves to Magento extensions.
Jeeves: [as if shocked] No, sir.
Bertie Wooster: Just as long as we understand each other. In case you thought so. With all these monthly reports, it’s easy to make a wrong decision.
Jeeves: Not at all, sir.
Bertie Wooster: Very good, Jeeves! So what’s the news on Magento Connect?
Jeeves: It turns like the extensions for Category& Product Page Enhancements are the winner in October, sir.
Bertie Wooster: Ha! I knew it right from the very start! You’d better read the rest, Jeeves.
Jeeves: Very good, sir [clears throat]: Category& Product Page Enhancements (+36), Shipping & Fulfillment (+29), Catalog (+18) and Widgets (+16), sir.
Bertie Wooster: Hmm, widgets… Have you ever seen any extensions for widgets in this list, Jeeves?
Jeeves: I have not had that pleasure, sir.
Bertie Wooster: We should have one of these.
Jeeves: I shall do as you recommend, sir.

Just like Bertie Wooster, here at aheadWorks we also recommend you to empower your Magento store with any extensions you might find useful, because Black Friday and multiple hordes of customers are coming this month!

Magento Connect September Statistics

Hello and welcome to the Magento statistics world!

Sometimes I get the blues, especially, when I look at myself sitting in an office in the heart of autumn. It usually happens in the early morning when the rain keeps on falling and falling and the only warm thing around is the coffee mug in my hands. No, it is a not a funny feeling, this famous autumn sadness.

But on the bright side, things look great: more and more extensions on Magento Connect are ready to serve your needs. Just reach your arms and gear yourself up with the latest weapons to fight your way through the lack of clients and competition.

So the leaders for September are:

• Images & Media (+44)
• UI Performance & Ajax (+39)
• Category & Product Page Enhancements (+34)
• Checkout (+18)

Thanks for your time and goodbye!

Magento Connect August Statistics

Hi there!

This blog post is not going to be a usual piece of statistics at least for one good reason: one year ago, in August 2011, I started my research. So Happy Birthday to Magento Connect Statistics! Congrats! We’re one year old now!

During that year, many things changed: Magento Connect itself, the mood of the research (it started out with a simple one-time idea coming from one of my colleagues and now it is a regular blog post in aheadWorks blog) and the audience which considerably grew in numbers. Yes, you fellow Magento Connect fans, I really appreciate your interest in stats and your positive feedback and comments.

So I decided to do some annual statistics this time. I mean what if we compare the results for the most popular categories through one year perspective? Sounds interesting, huh?

Let’s check this table:

Not bad, right? The growth rate goes starting from 7.4 to 11.6 new extensions a month!

As you can see, developers do their best to provide the community with various super-duper tools to rule the world of Magento. In other words, with all these extensions and things, you’re definitely geared for success, so don’t waste your chance.

Long live Magento Connect, the statistics and extensions, and people who made it happen.

Stay tuned!

Magento Connect June Statistics

Hello dear Magento Connect statistics fans! In my previous post on this topic in May, I expected Magento developers to stop creating extensions due to the appropriate weather for sunbathing and having summer fun. Lord knows, I was wrong.

So June is here this morning, and the sun is shining hot. The month for roses brought us the following results:

Category&Product Page Enhancements (+22)
Order Management (+19)

Hello fellow Magento Connect statistics fans! Look outside the window, this famous line describes it all: “Hot town, summer in the city!” Yes, the season of holydays has come.

Magento Connect January Statistics

Time flies they say. It is hard to disagree: it seemed not so long time ago that the new 2012 has just started, but the very first month of this “apocalyptical” year is already over. So it is the right time to provide Magento Community with the new Magento Connect statistics. In general, one must admit that the holidays didn’t make any impact on developers’ productivity. Lots of new extensions are ready to meet online marketers’ needs with hundreds of new ones still to come.

In terms of growth, the extensions for Category & Product Page Enhancements (+ 35 in comparison with November and it is the biggest growth ever recorded!), Administration (+18), Automation (+18), and Ease of Use and Images & Media (+16) are the leading ones.

This way, the previous twofold winner – the extensions for the Social & Marketing integration – couldn’t make it for the third time in a row. All these useful tools provide Magento store owners with new tools to improve their stores functionality & usability, and increase their revenue.

aheadWorks also made its valuable contribution to the list and introduced One Click Checkout for Magento (Ease of Use). While you’re enjoying its perfect quality and premium user experience, we are ready to come back in March with the new Magento Connect statistics.
