Mobile usage way up

Gazette marketing stats maven David “I Love the New England Patriots” Klimek checks in with the latest Google Analytics numbers on Habs Inside/Out page views.

The web site had 2,478.526 page views in October – our best month of 2010.

And the mobile version of HIO had 191,008 page views – best total ever,

As a reward for our record reach among mobile device users, Patrick V. Hickey has been given a BlackBerry, programmed with the home number of Red Fisher’s rotary dial black telephone.

    the only reason you have these stats is because you arent giving the users a choice, you are forcing a redirect without giving the option to always go to the full site

    the only thing your mobile site does is remove functionality, which is retarded

    if you dont want to develop an app, giving us full access to the sites features and if you want to gimp the mobile site accordingly, give our devices a choice as to which site WE WISH TO VISIT

    if you need help figuring out how to do this, i will gladly volunteer my services, i have worked on a few sites that do rectify this issue, but this has to end NOW and by now i mean its been a long time comming…


    ~love HIO, but please, for the love of GOD… stop redirecting us to your horrible mobile site…~

    I’m glad that you’re noticing the increased numbers in mobile users.

    I hope that will translate to catering a little better to the mobile users.

    as it stands the mobile experience SUCKS!


    – RSS Feed links end up on main page (not the article it references)

    – Forced redirects to the mobile version

    – even if we switch to non-mobile version, next page load goes back to mobile

    – no comments section


    I can go on and on …
