Can I monitor the traffic to my mobile site?

You can now monitor traffic to your mobile website for your law firm using the free service Google Analytics (GA).  If you're familiar with GA, you already know that it's a great tool for tracking traffic and can help you tweak your legal web marketing campaign.

With so many smartphones in use today, many sites are offering a mobile version of their website.  Using Google Analytics, you're able to see how many people have visited the mobile version of your site.  It also gives you data on the type of smartphone the visitor used, including details on the operating system, such as Android or iOS.

This information isn't difficult to access, especially if you've been using GA.  Once you're logged in, just click on “view reports.” It’ll display the report right away or, if you have more than one account, you can select the one you want. From here, click the “visitors” tab on the left part of the screen, then “mobile,” and finally “devices” – this should display the traffic for your mobile site.

You can take a look at a variety of data, which GA has gathered on your behalf, such as which smartphones were used and the number of mobile visitors.  In addition to the basic data, you can also view more specific information regarding your visitors.  If you browse around the page, you will see that there are various arrows and drop boxes available for you to click on. This shows you in-depth information about how visitors got there, where they are from, and what they looked at.
