30 most popular Drupal themes in Top 1M websites

In this list of popular Drupal Themes in the Alexa Top 1 million, I have tallied the number of Drupal themes based on the path of the theme installation.

Drupal theme counts were determined by analysing the html of the root pages in the top 1 million websites and extracting the default Drupal theme path (/all/themes/*/). Drupal installations using paths other than the one noted will not be among this list.

Related analysis was performed of the Top WordPress Themes in the Alexa 1 million, and the infographic of the WordPress Top 100K websites.

As this list is based on the default theme path, there will be themes and sites missed in this quick dump. However this is still a good indication of the themes that are being by the most popular Drupal installations in the world.

When I performed the analysis of the WordPress themes, it was very interesting to note the difference between the total download counts of themes compared with those that were in production use.
