When Will Mobile Web Traffic Surpass PC Traffic For You?

A few of our clients have shared with us their mobile traffic and forecasts. Quite a few - especially retailers - expect mobile (in this case phones and tablets) to surpass non-mobile traffic by Black Friday if it hasn't happened already. This tipping point will be the catalyst for many discussions:

- What web site is my primary web site? Or is there such a thing if I use responsive design tactics?

- How should I be dividing my resources among screens? The backend infrastructure is shared, but PC front end work still takes the lion's share of resources. 

- Is consumer use of the web changing? 

- Is overall usage climbing with mobile? or is mobile or tablets cannibalizing PC traffic? 

Take a look at Branding Brand's report for more stats and information. It's loaded with good stuff.

From the experience I have

From the experience I have with my blog I know that subject, design, connections to popular social sites and connections to forum posts are important for increasing the traffic of visitors. Posts about your blog in websites like http://www.twipquick.com/ are most effective, because they connect you to the most popular sites like facebook, yahoo answers, twitter etc. and there is a strong and continuant traffic of visitors to your site.

misinformed steady

Let me just say what badly undertraind customer service at pc mobility. Do not beleive anything this company tells you seems like they like to misinform customers like the rest. Is there not one honest cell phone company in canada. They all seem to like to misinform customers or mislead them just to make a sale. I know im moving all my cell phomes from pc mobility and so are all my family and friends we are just tired of cell phone companies lieing to customers. This is why the government stept in the first time and maybe they need to step in again and make sure customers are not being lied too or misinformed as they call it. If your a pc mobility customer beware what they tell you and maybe tape it when they tell you so they cant lie their way out of it.

Unhappy and now a non pc mobility customer
