The webinar will take place next Wednesday, January 18, 2012 at 1 PM PST. Contact your RM rep for more information on how to register.

Compatibility is a major concern when talking about mobile users and how they find and use your site. So naturally, knowing which device and/or platform they use can help you determine if your site is working properly on each one.

Google Analytics provides this information. If you log into your account, click on Standard Reporting at the top taskbar, and then click on Mobile in the left hand column, you’ll be able to look at all the mobile stats for your website.

Everything from type of device, to amount of traffic, to time on site, all the information from your full site that you’re likely familiar with, focused specifically on the mobile usage.
