The growth in traffic of #Wikipedia from #mobile phones

A growth of 44% compared with the previous month and a growth of 142% compared to the previous year is exceptional. The traffic of 3,709 M in December 2012 is up from 372 M in July 2010 in other words there has been a tenfold growth in less than 2 years.

It does vindicate the effort that goes in making MediaWiki look good on mobile phones.

A month over month increase of 44% seemed very implausible, and indeed investigation revealed a code change on our mobile site generated bogus traffic. The stats have been regenerated based on extrapolated data from first half of month only.
