Link: Why the Orange County Register saw record mobile traffic last weekend

After working a weekend reporting shift on Saturday covering a nasty 10-car wreck I was checking up on our mobile stats Monday afternoon. I noticed that our mobile website had its best day on Sunday, about 5,000 page views more than the previous best (the previous best was a very rainy day in November).

So, I thought I’d compare our mobile traffic (web and apps) to that seen on the desktop website and I found out that we hit 24% mobile share Sunday and 25% Saturday. One tweet about that led to an article on Poynter talking about our best mobile day and why.
