WebEngage Widget Is Now Being Served Over 260 Million Times Every Month

Whoa, that’s a mind boggling 100 requests every second!

For the uninitiated, WebEngage is a customer engagement toolkit for online business that integrates via a one-time JavaScript widget code on any website. Here’s some nicotine for our developer friends:

We reported serving 100 million requests in August, 2012. That’s a 2.6 fold jump in 5 months time. If you are a customer reading this, thank you.

With more and more customers coming on board WebEngage, this number is set to soar at a much greater pace in times to come. Large enterprise customers (mostly e-commerce) account for a bulk of this traffic. We take pride in powering customer engagement for these companies who are using our tools too drive conversions and engagement on their websites for a wide variety of use-cases like cart abandonment, user messaging, customer profiling, realtime customer feedback etc.

We love Amazon (for the record, more than we love Google and Apple put together). We are hosted completely inside the AWS infrastructure. It allows us to scale easily as the business continues to grow. We use a host of their services at WebEngage – EC2, AWS, Cloudfront, SES, ELB etc to name a few. We use Amazon’s CDN for serving the widget file mentioned above. Underneath are stats for the month of Jan, 2013:

As you can see APAC and US+Europe account for the most of our traffic. In addition to these a good 10% of the widget traffic is HTTPS requests which we serve from our servers.

We have our eyes (still) set on that milestone – 1 Billion/month.

Stay tuned. We love you!
