I've gone from 10% mobile : 90% desktop to an exact 50:50.
Rocket surgeon that I am, I have just realized that Google displays different search results to queries made from mobile, than they do to queries made from desktops. In other words, Google gives preference to mobile-formatted websites for mobile-sourced queries. Or am I wrong somehow?
At any rate, anybody else noticing a sharp increase in mobile traffic?
Yes, but will also say that I'm not sure it has anything to do with recent changes. I've gone from around 2% to 15%. For me, not a huge numbers change then, and possibly not significant at all. Wait a week and I'll tell you more.
You should write a hub about being a rocket surgeon!
What are we looking at here? Adsense earnings? Visitor numbers?
I see a jump in adsense from tablets but one swallow etc
That's what I'm looking at: the new adsense page pie chart for "view platforms".
Yep, as Wilderness said, Adsense. Several days ago, my chart had mobile at absolute zero. That may have been an anomaly, since later was seeing 10% before the upgrade.
I'm seeing about a 20% increase in views from mobile devices and well as a similar increase in overall cpm on Adsense and Hubpages Ads which is a nice pre-Xmas present considering Xmas hubs seem to be under-performing when compared to previous years. This time last year was an exceptionally low traffic point for me so comparing year on year is not particularly valid.
Lets see what happens when Google stabilises after the new mobile site updates but it's nice to see positive shoots appearing.
Just checked on Analytics. The percentage of mobile, tablet and desktop for today, last week (same day) and the week before last (same day) is pretty consistent. So, I've not got any spikes in mobile viewers compared to the rest.
My desktop traffic is around 65%
Mobile 20% and rest tablet.
My stats are likewise bouncing around. Desktop now at 75%.
Early Saturday morning. Adsense informs me that over half my views are mobiles and tablets, but that 99% of my earnings are from desktop. Tough town, the internet...
It's actually a huge upcoming problem for google and advertisers in general. Smartphones have very little space for visual ad revenue - ad money is going to decline further. That's why google's been diversifying so readily into things like Glass and self-driving cars.
But some 85% of their revenue is still from ads.
For my part it's encouraging me to go into making comics more seriously - with writing as a supplement to that. That way I still capture more desktop traffic.

I find it helpful to compare the current month and recent months with the same months from a year ago to see how my revenue and audience are doing.The above title explains my situation. I have both HP ads and AdSense. Is anyone else who tracks their numbers every month seeing the same trend?

Over the past couple of weeks I've seen a massive drop in "page views" in my Adsense reporting. Clicks have remained about the same. The drop seems to coincide with Marina's announcement of "More Ad Changes this Week" from a few weeks back. Is there something about the new ad...

As I guess everyone is discovering, AdSense just did an upgrade, format change, whatever.Two puzzling items immediately became apparent.1. I'm getting twice the earnings from Canada than I'm getting from the US.2. 100% of my earnings are from desktop. Nary a mobile critter in sight.Based on the...

I just got on to check my hubs after being gone for a few months and found that the editbot had changed a word in one of my articles that was a typo I had missed but the word it changed it to had "$6" after it, which was not part of my hub. I unchecked it and then edited my hub to correct...
