Joomla Extensions Directory Reaches Six Thousand Published!

The Joomla! Extensions Directory (JED) reached 6000 published listings this week.  We wanted to take a moment to share what that means and additionally give an overview of how the JED statistics compare with both Wordpress and Drupal.

Time for some quick facts:

Number of Extensions in JED
  • Joomla! is the only top CMS with a directory of extensions (add-ons) that functions without direct downloads hosted on site and instead provide the opportunity for developers to host their own.
  • The download button on extension listings has been clicked over 138,976,526 times - on currently listed extensions
  • Listing owner (developer) sites have been directly visited over 9,488,477 times on currently listed extensions  (direct click thrus, not including the "download button" click)
  • The JED has had over 14,489 submissions
  • For current listings, over 66,874 votes have been cast.
  • The current volunteer team consists of 8 volunteers who freely donate an average total of 615 volunteer hours each month
  • On average, the team processes over 100 Review Reports, 350 Listing Reports, 400 Extension Submissions, 2000 reviews and 1500 listing updates - each month
  • Over 69,000 indexed pages in Google for the JED.
With over 187, 631 registered users of the JED it is not suprising to see the rapid growth of the directory and the ecosystem surrounding it.  But then I hear you say..  "What's next?"

Upcoming new Editor's Picks - In a recent blog post the JED Team opened up nominations to the general community for Editor's Picks.  Now that the nomination form is closed and over 1100 nominations have been submitted the JED Editorial Team will be making it's selections and reviewing each extension chosen.
Upcoming Social Integrations - In a push to further tie the listings on the JED to "individual choice" the site will have more features regarding social sharing and media integrated into the listings.
Easier Terms of Service and Submission Process - As technology changes, so does the manual tasks that are necessary for daily business.  The JED is no exception.  Because of new advancements, the JED Terms of Service are currently in the process of being simplified.
More Categories - Extension Specific categories are growing daily and more are on the way!
Simplified Search - A simplified search is coming soon but the advanced search we all love and use will remain
