In January 2011, we released version 1 of our own analysis into UK mobile web traffic.
The data illustrated a massive 4000% growth in the proportion of UK web traffic accounted for by mobile devices, the number having jumped from 0.02% in September 2009 to 8.09%. We also found that Apple far outperformed Android and Blackberry and anticipated a further increase in mobile web traffic in the coming months.
6 months is a long time in mobile and we have revisited the data and updated our findings up to the end of July 2011.
We used data from the same sources as in version 1. The figures are taken from Google Analytics, from several different UK websites in several different niche areas. This gave us between 1.5 million and 2.4 million total web visits (the vast majority of which were UK) to work with.
This quantity of data gives us a in depth insight into how quickly mobile web traffic is growing and in addition, the different web devices accounted for this growth.

There can be a variety of reasons for a website to exist, whether that’s because you’re selling a product, service or providing information. There has to be a purpose and focus in how you get that information across so that, first of all, users find your website and secondly, they convert.
At some point during your career in an agency, you’ll find yourself pitching to a client. And it doesn’t stop there – from pitching and presenting a campaign strategy there’s a phone call & face-to-face meeting, and eventually reporting.
