A website’s mobile traffic represents on average around 10% of all traffic, but from personal experience I have seen mobile traffic double during holidays and high traffic times because people are using their phones as they travel. That’s 20% of your traffic, or 1 out of every 5 people vising your site. You might think “but 4 out of 5 people still visit us on a computer, so do we really need a mobile strategy?” Remember it’s 20%. If you grew your annual revenue by 20% would that be a pretty big deal? I think we all can say yes. In Australia, over 54% of people are using their phones for searching the internet.
