What is an Image CDN?

Images are the new norm in online content, and maximizing the speed of images served to customers or webviewers is a recent business challenge that many e-commerce sites and advertising platforms attempt to solve a number of different ways. However, unless images are being served on a Content Delivery Network (CDN), the images served on a website will most likely load too slowly. This happens for many reasons. In this blog we will explain the critical role an image CDN provides to websites, how it’s different than an image management platform or regular CDN, and much more. Read More…

More Mobile Insights in Google Analytics with WURFL.js

The Google Adwords team recently published a post on how to get better insights into mobile traffic on a web site.

analytics adwords wurfl

Most businesses see a shift in customer behavior that indicates customers are both more comfortable converting on their mobile devices and are shifting their research to mobile. To understand this better, we have created a new dashboard for you that helps you analyze mobile specific data for your own website.

The problem with this dashboard is that it only shows generic information. Mobile vs. not mobile is is an important differentiator, but “mobile” is a wide definition. The mobile space is endlessly diverse and extremely dynamic. For example, the chart grouping traffic based on operating system is “nice to know”, but that’s about it. Even within iOS or Android the diversity of devices, browser and capabilities is vast. An iPhone 6S Plus is a very different device compared to a iPhone 5. Similarly, a low end Android device is miles away from the latest fashion top model from Samsung. This is true for everything from screen size to processing power. This will affect your conversions and usability of your site, thus it’s critical to monitor continuously.

This is why we made this Google Analytics dashboard powered by WURFL.js. The dashboard is publicly available and free for anyone to install. Here is a video explaining the simple steps:

MOVR Report Q3 has been Released and it was a Great Success

In God we trust. All others must bring data.”
– W. Edwards Deming

Last week we announced the second episode of our Mobile OverView Report (MOVR for friends)  for Q3.

Compared to Q2, we followed the advice of those who commented on the first MOVR report (Q2) and included quite a lot of good interesting data that is hard to find anywhere else. Above all, we presented it on a continent by continent basis that made it very interesting, along with some nice data visualization.

2 days after the announcement, over 20 thousand people had downloaded the PDF. This has us very pleased, but, at the same time, it only surprised us to a point. The report comes with a lot of interesting information.

 

For example, did you know that:

 

  • 13% of web traffic from mobile devices originate from apps with embedded browsers (webview)
  • Facebook app is by far the biggest source of non-browser (webview) traffic
  • By end of Q3, iPhone 6 accounted for 5.8% and iPhone 6 Plus represented 0.8% of all iOS Smartphones in North America
  • For Smartphones, 61% is Android and 31% is iOS Globally. Windows Phone OS represent 6.5%.
  • By end of Q3 iOS 7.1 is still the predominant version, however 30% of iOS traffic is iOS 8.
  • Most Smartphones used for web browsing have screens between 4 and 5 inches. Asians prefer bigger screens
  • Most Tablets used for web browsing have screens between 9 and 10 inches. Asians prefer smaller screens.
  • Chrome browser usage on Smartphones is growing. iOS smartphones generate 6% of all Chrome traffic.
  • Samsung (40%) and Apple (28%) are the biggest contributors to Chrome browsing volumes for tablets.
  • Chrome usage is growing on iOS devices. 8% Chrome usage on tablets and 6% on Smartphones.
  • Moto G (10%) is the most popular Smartphone in Brazil followed by Nokia Lumia 520 (8%).
  • Windows Phone OS has a significant share of 18% of Smartphone traffic in Brazil.
  • Brazilians also use their tablets in bed. They go to sleep at 10PM.
  • Only 19 tablets are making up the top 10 tablets across all continents
  • Top 10 Smartphones consist of only 24 devices across all continents

All this and more is to be found in the Q3 report. Luke Wroblewski also liked the report and so did many of his followers if we have to judge by the number of retweets and favorites.

 

 

To conclude with the words of the MOVR newsletter (yes, we recommend you subscribe), ScientiaMobile has published MOVR to provide the mobile Web community with timely information about device usage trends. MOVR focuses on smartphone, tablet and feature phone usage, drawn from a sample of our internal data sources from around the world with over 2.5 billion hits. Enjoy.
