Visits from mobile devices accounted for 31 percent of all website traffic in Q4 2013, up 35 percent since Q4 2012, according to the Walker Sands Quarterly Mobile Traffic Report.
Walker Sands, a public relations and digital agency for technology companies and startups, found that the percentage of website traffic from mobile devices continues to increase year over year.
