I get a very small amount of views from desktop users. This somewhat surprised me. Is this true for everybody?
Hm, that is interesting. Admittedly, the mobile version of the site is extremely easy to read and post comments on Hubs and forum posts.
Yup around 70% of my views over the last week were mobile views.
Mine is up to 80% from mobile. Sometimes I see 90% mobile in GA real-time traffic. This is why the need to make hubs mobile friendly by removing right floating capsules was announced three years ago and finally implemented last year.
From the things I read since I made this post it seems Google is starting to push towards websites having mobile friendly web pages as well.
Hubpages was well aware of the mobile trend. Remember not long ago when full size images were and still are required? This is because it fits a mobile platform. My views are also mostly mobile now. Keep in mind what "mobile" really means. Basically anything that's not a desktop. (Android, I-phone, tablet, etc) although I have seen on analytics that they break down these things considering mobile vs tablets
Mobile devices are ubiquitous.We all experience more traffic from mobile devices than desktop devices.Mobile devices load faster and they provide a seamless browsing experience.

We recently rolled out a change that makes viewing hubs using a mobile browser a better experience. Basically, we've removed the sidebar and stripped away anything that wasn't essential. We've tested it on the iphone and some versions of android and it works pretty well. However,...

Hi Hubbers,We've been engaging with some outside help on helping bring more traffic to HubPages. It's going to be an iterative process where we take recommendations, test them out on the site, and adjust. The first round of changes we have been working on is the topic hierarchy. ...

Scoring may not work on subsequent "hops" and you have to go back and Hop again in order to ensure that the scoring works. Also, sometimes you lose a hub you were reading before having a chance to rate it.
