Cater for people on the go!
With the huge increase in mobile devices being used, mobile web traffic is on the increase. Is your site optimised well enough for a customer using a smart phone or tablet? If you not, you are likely losing business.
Let us pose some questions for you:
- Have you ever viewed your website on a mobile device?
- Do you know the difference between a mobile device running on iOS or android operating systems?
- Does your site use flash banners or even a flash menu?
- Do you know what percentage of your sites traffic is from mobile devices?
If you don’t know the answers to these questions then it’s likely you are losing business because mobile platform users can’t properly access your site.
Recent statistical studies say
- Global mobile data traffic grew 2.3-fold in 2011, more than doubling for the fourth year in a row. The 2011 mobile data traffic growth rate was higher than anticipated. Last year’s forecast projected that the growth rate would be 131 percent. This year’s estimate is that global mobile data traffic grew 133 percent in 2011.
- Last year’s mobile data traffic was eight times the size of the entire global Internet in 2000. Global mobile data traffic in 2011 (597 petabytes per month) was over eight times greater than the total global Internet traffic in 2000 (75 petabytes per month).
- Global mobile data traffic will increase 18-fold between 2011 and 2016. Mobile data traffic will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 78 percent from 2011 to 2016, reaching 10.8 exabytes per month by 2016.
- By the end of 2012, the number of mobile-connected devices will exceed the number of people on earth, and by 2016 there will be 1.4 mobile devices per capita. There will be over 10 billion mobile-connected devices in 2016, including machine-to-machine (M2M) modules-exceeding the world’s population at that time (7.3 billion).
