Default How do you find out how much mobile traffic a site is getting?

Hi there guys,

I wanted to know what techniques/tools you guys are using to find out how much mobile traffic a site (you don't own) is getting.

I know there is no way to find an exact number, other than looking at the websites internal analytics (google analytics ect)....however until recently there have been some other ways to get an approximate idea....such as putting the businesses name into the Google keyword tool and then segmenting searches by device, whereby then you could see how many searches people are making for that business from mobile, but since Google has changed their keyword tool, you can no longer segment by device...

I wanted to know what techniques/tools you guys are using to estimate the proportion of businesses website traffic that comes from mobile devices....

Really look forward to your replies on this....

For now, just go to keywords tool and type keyword, select country, then click on mobile devices and hit search - results mobile searches for your term on mobile devices.

What do you mean by "that feature is being pulled in less than 2 months"....??? Does that mean we marketers won't have access to it any longer? Please expatiate... :confused:

Why would you need such an estimation? If you are going to use it while approaching clients, I wouldn't use estimations that might come out to be very different from the reality. A lot of companies release statistical research results about mobile web usage and I would prefer using such stats.

Install Google Analytics. Let it run for a few weeks. You can then look at your stats by device and it will show the number of mobile visitors you are getting. This is the only reliable way to do it. Anything else would be just a guess and shouldn't be used in a sales pitch.

By you don't own, you mean the site of a prospect or the site of a client.

If of a client, install tracking, something like Google analytics, and it will tell you.

If it's of a prospect, and you're trying to use that information to convince them they should hire you to make them a mobile site, use Google keyword tools... It can be set to give you average searches for desk top and laptop devices and for mobile devices.

You make your presentation based on averages for the industry...

When the answer was given, Google KW existed.
Wasn't that obvious?

Thanks, but it will only tell you how many people come to your site, you cannot search for dentists in seattle, or anything like that if I remember right.

What are you talking about? You posted on the 10th September telling people to use Google KW tool, but Google closed that piece of software in August. ROL
