Online retailers lose more web traffic from mobile browsers

Enabling your website for mobile visitors doesn’t just improve the consumer experience. It also makes commercial sense.

The latest organisation to produce figures that prove what we’ve known for a long time is UK-based search marketing agency Mediarun. It’s found that ‘bounce rates’ from mobile devices are around 40%, which is about 10% higher than on desktop browsers. The company says this means 5.6% of all mobile traffic is being lost by online retailers... and that’s a significant amount of lost sales.

51Degrees.mobi implements W3C and Facebook Ringmark browser tests

51Degrees.mobi has become the first device detection business to implement Ringmark in its free-for-commercial-use and paid-for premium data sets. This ground-breaking move makes it easier for developers to create mobile web sites that are tailored to the precise needs of online visitors.

Ringmark is the mobile browser test process introduced at Mobile World Congress 2012 by Facebook. It’s designed to help developers learn more about each mobile web visitor without requiring visitors to provide any personal details. Coremob, the Core Mobile Web Platform Community Group from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), is eventually expected to be handed control of the project.

New research says less than a third of top US online retailers are ready for tablets

51Degrees.mobi strongly believes that one size doesn’t fit all. It’s the reason we created our own mobile device description repository, which enables web designers to create a site that’ll adapt automatically for visitors using mobile phones.

However, it’s important to realise that a choice of just two sizes can also be less than ideal. With consumers now using portable internet-connected devices that range from feature phones to iPads, simply deciding whether or not a handset is ‘mobile’ isn’t always enough.
