The History of E-Commerce Infographic

I simply had to add this inforgraphic as well. You probably saw the Page Rank infographic I posted a few months back, and although this is not 100% SEO related graphic it is sure a great insight for those in the online marketing business.  I really must praise the guys from ZippyCart who created this amazing graphic. I posted just an image here which surely tells a lot, but if you want to find out more about the history of e-commerce you can do so at ZippyCart website.

    Well, it is funny that an old lady was the first “online shopper” and not some young “hipster” trying out a hot new tech.

    Other than that a very interesting graphic to remind how far and how fast we have come.

    ‘Kinda makes you wonder. Google seems like an unstoppable juggernaut right now, but as a business it really is a newborn. Ten years from now we could all be operating in a completely new paradigm.

    Well Steve you can look at it that way, but it doesn’t surprise me. Even though youngsters are known to have an interest in tech, the old people are the easy ones that order things from tele-shop :(

    As for Google, yeah you are right, they are really new and they already have one of the greatest empires on the planet, but that also goes to show that in 10 years someone else might be in their place!

    Hi Zarko,

    That’s an interesting one!

    I never knew that the first online home shopper was a 72 year old. Google has come a long way in just a decade. I cannot imagine what could happen in the next 10 years. Probably they are going to put a ban on e-commerce in the name of security after finding out one fine day that a terrorist group used the Internet to have explosives transported to the scene of crime?


  9. Zarko on November 22, 2010

    Yeah, everything can happen, Google is surely expanding, whether that is a good thing or a bad thing time will tell.

    PS. I had no idea about the granny being the first one, but you know that old people are the first one to order things from the tele-shop.

    I love the picture of the guy from the Dell commercials – Steve, wasn’t it? I’m sure Dell has made significant contributions to online commerce, but the funny thing is that I remember Steve best of all.
