Traffic to the Website from Mobile Devices
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.
The trend throughout 2014 was a decrease in the percent of traffic from non-mobile devices while the percentage of traffic from mobile devices continued to grow.
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.
In the last two years there were two main contributors to mobile views to the website. In 2013 traffic from mobile phones averaged nearly 65% of the traffic from mobile devices and traffic from tablets averaged 34%. In 2014 the gap widened as mobile phone traffic average increased to 69.9% and average traffic from tablets dropped to 29.3%.
