My Bing traffic earlier today was about 25% of the volume of my Google traffic. Not because of the whims of search engines, just a result of my work done in the recent past. I expect Yahoo! traffic will climb to similar levels shortly.
There is no doubt that mobile traffic will become more significant than desktop unless you are in an industry where large screen size/information display is a significant factor.
Kind of amusing how many people are making mention of picking up their marbles and going home. That's always been one of those things that if you are going to do it, power to you, but why would you announce it beforehand?

Just to weigh in on our usual post holiday bump...it basically did not happen.
What started did begin a day later than usual on Dec 27th, lasted all of two weeks and on Jan 21, turned south and back to nearly mid summer levels (lowest of the year). It seems when you start making a hot recovery, Google is there to hit the brakes and make sure you don't succeed. Every single time it looks like we are pulling out and moving back up the ladder, they quickly throttle us back. We even did a FB promo to invite 30,000 of our customers to join and like our FB page, over 1,000 new likes in 2 days, but it didn't register the slightest bump on G's radar. I'm not surprised.

Just a quick note: for those who have tried to sticky mail me regarding this topic: my sticky mail does not work. I can read your mail, but I can no longer send replies. Not sure why...

Zombies Seven, Zombies! That or I just got the worst manual penalty since MayDay 2010! Site is still getting "normal" levels of traffic, but it ain't human. Bounce went through the roof on Sunday.

Are you by any chance using page visibility API to check if the requests are prerenders?

so after days of no sales and anemic traffic, I get an quick ON period with conversions almost every minute starting at 3:26pm CST...then one at 3:29, 3:30 and 3:31....now all is silent again.
Everything must have lined up just right for a few moments, like cherry, cherry, cherry on a casino slot machine.
levo - no, I'll have to look into that...got any more info?

Often makes me wonder if this is one of the reasons that sites hit by Panda struggle more to get out of it. Less traffic, less targeted, therefore harder to get/calculate decent user metrics than a site that's getting its proper flow of traffic.

You can use the API to check for prerendering, also if the window is 'focused.'
