Published on the 10/09/2014 – Whilst website traffic follows its downward trend in France in 2014, mobile and app traffic continue to boom with an average increase of 68% and 45% respectively in June 2014 vs. -6.8% for websites. With an increasing number of mobile internet users in France and significant usage of m-commerce and social networks, mobile sites and apps are on a roll.
Perimeter and methodology
- Study carried out from July 1st, 2012 to June 30th, 2014
- Cross-section of 2,215 websites, 357 applications and 149 mobile sites
We are interested in visits recorded by a certain cross-section of websites, mobile sites and applications audited by AT Internet. In order to establish the cross-section of websites, mobile sites and applications to be used as part of a study, a website is only used if the selection criteria, which have been established previously, are respected. These criteria are very strict and their aim is to remove any websites, mobile sites and applications which have an anecdotal audience, or a chaotic audience, or whose collected data underlines a dysfunction in the measurement. Only websites whose traffic has been mainly generated within France are considered. In addition to this, only visits to these websites, mobile sites and applications which have been generated within the country itself are considered.
