Traffic to the Website from Mobile Devices

Mobile Page Views

Traffic to the website from mobile devices increased steadily in the last two years. In 2014 mobile views were up from 15.4 million or 19.2% in January to 18 million or 23.4% in December. The spike in October is due to a high interest in Ebola outbreak content.

Mobile vs Non-mobile Visits

While page views from mobile devices represent 23.4% of all page views in December visits from mobile devices represent 42.3% of all visits. The above chart shows the percent of visits from mobile devices increasing while the percent of visits from desktops decreasing. The reason that page views from mobile devices do not also make up 42.3% of all page views is because visits from mobile devices consume less content than visits from desktops.
