“Despite regular reports that Google’s Android platform has passed iPhone 4 in both installed base and growth, Jeff Tribble of SEO firm ROI365 notes that the firm’s analytics data covering 4 million unique visitors across a large portfolio of web sites actually reveals that Android’s share of web visits over the iPhone ‘is very slight and has not grown much over the past quarter,'” Daniel Eran Dilger reports for AppleInsider.
“Tribble reported that his collective data ‘currently show 2.89% of the visits coming from Android vs 2.62% coming from iPhone. In December we showed 2.05 for Android and 2.01 for iPhone. But this is not an apples to apples comparison,’ he noted,” Dilger reports. “‘The Android stats are for the total platform while iOS stats are broken out into 3 categories, iPhone, iPad and iPod. Android has never come close to passing iOS as a whole,’ Tribble reported. ‘Our iOS visits are currently 4.97%, up from 3.8% in December.'”
