Web analytics are used to retrieve anonymous information about users. We focus here on websites that support mobile clients. This information is important from the perspective of business analysis as web analytics help in making appropriate design decisions. Popular web sites may handle several million page views a day, so poor system design – even that related only to collecting statistics on user behavior – may produce performance bottlenecks or even system failures. This paper presents measurements based on a userdata database for a large mobile supported website and a model used when designing such sites.
