    Mobile Percentage


    Hi, i am not sure if i am posting this in the right section, so apologies if not...

    Has anyone seen or know where i could get a percentage figure for overall sites that are now being viewed on a mobile device. I guess this is the same as asking, how many users use the internet, and then how many of them are accessing the interent via their mobile device, and how often...

    I know this information is available for a single site using Google Analytics, but what about a % breakdown for the overall internet. I'd imagine the % is constantly increasing, however does anyone know the exact figure... thanks in advance for your help...

    No. The architecture of the internet makes it physically impossible to know this. My guess is that it's around 10% +/- 5%. It'll vary drastically depending on the type of site though. A site like Twitter or Facebook will have a much much higher mobile percentage than a site like Devshed or Sourceforge.

    Yeah you're spot on... i thought it would have been something in the range of 60% desktop / 40% mobile
