New Feature: Mobile Device Stats

Mobile Device stats are now available for all StatCounter members.

When viewing your stats, you can access this new statistic by choosing “Browsers” in the left menu bar and then “Mobile Device” at the top of the page.

Given the increasing usage of mobile devices to access the internet, we’re very pleased to be able to offer you, our members, this new statistic.

(For further information on mobile usage visit the StatCounter Global Stats site and view a graph of worldwide mobile v desktop activity or look at individual countries e.g. India or Nigeria. For other regions, simply choose from the dropdown list.)

This stat will help you to identify the individual mobile devices which are most commonly used to access your site. Use this information to optimise your site for mobile OR to establish if there is a problem accessing your site from certain devices.

Please bear in mind that this stat is a work-in-progress and we plan to add further functionality in the coming weeks. Please also make sure to send us your feedback and ideas so that we can refine and improve the Mobile Device stat to suit your needs.

Click any Mobile Vendor name (e.g. Apple or Motorola) to display a breakdown of the individual devices (as illustrated above).

As always – your comments are welcome below. Thanks folks.

    NOTES:

  • If you have a mobile device, please consider contributing to our Mobile Detection project. Please visit this link using your mobile device and let us know any updates or changes we should make.
  • Apologies for the hiatus of posts on the blog… one minute it was December 2011 then suddenly through a mist of mobile stats and detection work we find ourselves in May 2012 without a single blog post having been done in the interim! We will try hard not to let that happen again… 😉

  1. I use myspace and been I’ve getting quite a bit of unknown visitors from mobile devices. Some mobile visitors shows up only if they go to the full website of myspace from their browser but not if they use the mobile website of myspace which is m.myspace.com Could you design a code specifically for mobile websites i.e. myspace?

    1. This is a welcome change. Im getting a lot of traffic coming through on browsers and now we can finally develop according to mobile popularity and explore additional monetary avenues per device 🙂

  2. This is great stuff, Statcounter.

    I would like to ask as an aside that I have noticed that a lot of people are now using features like Ghostery, where their activities are shrouded.

    This came to my attention when I was getting clicks on my Bitly links which had not shown up in my Statcounter reports.

    What are your thoughts on this?

  3. This is actually very good. I hope that these stats will work with all mobile devices, because my particular smart phone falls into the “other” category. I will visit the link for the mobile detection project, and let you know if there are any issues. My smart phone is a Nokia that is similar to a blackberry, but it’s all proprietary to Nokia.

  4. Very cool feature. I already get a fair amount of traffic from mobile devices so it’ll be nice to know exactly which devices they are.

  5. This is exactly what I’m looking for as I’m currently engaging in mobile advertising and need to have access to the type of data that using your products allow. Thanks very much.

  6. Went to gs.statcounter.com/detect on my Sumsung Galaxy SIII edited the information but the ‘Submit button’ does not not work on that page – or at least nothing appears to happen

  7. I’ve been reading a few of the posts in the blog here and one thing I’ve noticed are the high quality/standard of your graphics and infographics. I’ve used statcounter from the year dot, but haven’t really looked at your blog before…

    It’s got some good stuff in it so I’ve bookmarked it and I’ll be back for a look around again soon.

  8. ok, thanks you
    yes,i support you
