Mobile Traffic Increasing Dramatically
Ryan over on the forums posted a new thread “ipad Traffic Increasing Dramatically“.
Recently I have seen an increase in ipad visits to websites I play with. It’s interesting because I suspected this but didn’t suspect the amount so quickly.
Are you watching your dealer website visitors by mobile device?
This is something I have been watching for about a year now, adding the Visitors by Mobile Device to my dealers (and DealerRefresh) Google Analytics dashboard for quick reference.
A little over a year ago – you were lucky to see a few iPhone visitors to your dealership website, but just over the last 4-6 months, visitors from mobile devices have really increased. Especially on Andriod devices, and now we are quickly seeing visits from the iPad.
NOTE: IF you have your websites set up to automatically detect a mobile browser – you might want to be sure that it’s not pointing over to the mobile site for iPad visitors (unless you have a Flash intensive dealer website ). It’s annoying as hell when you want to visit a dealers website from your iPad and you keep getting redirected to the mobile site.
Whether or not you have a mobile dealership website, you might want to keep an eye on your analytics. They might just tell you something.
Mobile will of course continue to rise – it’s going to happen, especially on the local side.
Are you watching your visitors by mobile device in our analytics and are the analytics showing that maybe you should have a mobile website if you don’t already?
If you do, who is your mobile website provider? Feel free to drop a link in your comment (dealers only please).
