5 industries leading the mobile web

Who are the leaders when it comes to delivering to mobile?

We delved deeper into the web’s top 100,000 sites delivering mobile-friendly experiences explored in our second State of the Mobile Web post. And what we found is 5 industries were leading the mobile web, with over 3/4 of sites in those industries delivering mobile-friendly experiences.

These 5 industries not only have the highest percentage of sites delivering mobile-friendly experiences, they also are twice as likely to deliver mobile optimized experiences.

Leading the way was the restaurant industry, with 88% of restaurant sites in the web’s top 100,000 websites offering mobile-friendly experiences. This industry has 1.8 times the percentage of mobile sites as the least mobile-friendly industry, government.

Who’s really mobile optimized?

Few sites deliver mobile optimized experiences

It’s one thing to deliver mobile, it’s another thing to deliver mobile well.

In the first State of the Mobile Web post we looked at the top 100,000 sites on the web to see just how many were delivering to mobile. Overall, 64% were mobile-friendly, with the number skewing higher – up to 87% – when we looked at just the top 1,000 sites.

Taking it a step deeper, we wanted to dig into the 64% and see how it was delivering to mobile. After all, having a mobile site is a start, and but it takes so much more to deliver mobile optimized experiences.

Moving as Fast as Mobile

Delivering to an Increasingly Mobile World

Podium at Gartner ITxpo 2014

A few weeks ago, Moovweb CEO and Founder Ajay Kapur presented “Delivering to an Increasingly Mobile World: Moving as Fast as Your Customers” at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2014.

At the core of Ajay’s presentation is the fact that the personal computing landscape has fundamentally shifted over the last 40 years.

And in the last 5 years, this shift toward mobile has accelerated. The market share of personal computing platforms owned by Windows dropped from 90% to 24%, most of it lost to Android.

This shift is not just a blip. It is the beginning of the next generation of platforms. And it is driven by fundamental changes in human behavior.

How mobile is the web?

What we learned from crawling the top 100K sites

Naseem Makiya is a Data Engineer at Moovweb. He works on market research and financial planning and analysis to better understand the mobile landscape.

It started with that simple question. “How mobile is the web?”

We know that the people that are using the web are mobile. We’ve hit an inflection point where mobile is overtaking desktop. It’s something we’ve seen coming for years – working with some of the largest names on the web to deliver to mobile. But what about the next thousand sites? The next ten thousand? How is the web on the whole delivering to an increasingly mobile world?
