Mobile Accounts for 43% of LinkedIn’s Traffic 

Mobile accounts for 43% of LinkedIn's trafficLinkedIn recently projected that mobile would account for half of the social networking platform’s traffic; based on the company’s 1st quarter results, that could be a reality soon.  Mobile represented 43% of LinkedIn’s traffic in Q1 2014, according to the results announced yesterday (AdWeek).

Some additional stats from LinkedIn’s first quarter results:

  • LinkedIn has 142 million unique visitors per month (and 300 million members)
  • membership grew 36% year-over-year
  • ad sales were also up 36% year-over-year

How will continued growth in mobile traffic affect ad sales on the platform?
