Mobile Growth at ChristianBlog

A look into the growth of mobile use at ChristianBlog.Com

Over the last year I have invested a great many hours into the redevelopment of the design and layout of the ChristianBlog.Com website, and I have continued to make the statement that it is "for those using mobile devices" or something along that line.

I wanted to take a brief moment to share three graphs that really show-case the issue of why this is so important, because I am sure that there are folks out there thinking a lot of these changes are for naught.

A computers/devices operating system is the type of device (windows computer/laptop, apple computer/laptop, iphone, android phone, etc) that people use and by tracking/reporting on it, we are able to get the easiest method to compare just how fast or slow a websites growth of mobile devices is.

So in these grapsh we are going to take a look at the operating system of those who have visited the website over the course of March 2013, March 2014 and finally March 2015.

March 2013

A combined 69.31% of people accessing the ChristianBlog.Com website are using the two most popular desktop/laptop operating systems on the market.

Thanks for this information. I realized as I read this blog that I access CB on three different devices. While I most frequently access it via my Mac desktop, as of the summer/fall of 2014, I have also started accessing it via my iPad and my iPhone. I really appreciate the work you have done in order to make CB mobile friendly.

Blessings!

The thing I forgot to point out is this:

Total Desktop Usage: 53.44%

Total Mobile Usage: 45.14%

This is putting mobile use rather close to the total desktop use. I suspect that eventually, if not rather soon, mobile use is going to overtake desktop use.
