Thanks very much for the feedback. I couldn't agree more on the need to have a publicly available source of mobile website traffic and rankings (along the lines of what Comscore, Alexa, Compete, and others are doing for the internet). Having such a resource would greatly accelerate the development of the mobile web for all parties in the ecosystem. Perhaps an idea for a new startup? :-)

Bullcrap

As I expected… and congrats on the traffic.

It would be great for all of us if there was an open traffic tracking system for wap sites. It would give advertisers and content sellers the ability to do deals for wap banner ads direct with site owners rather than going through a 3rd party.

I love the site by the way David, you guys are doing a great job.

Over 95% of the traffic to SnapMyLife comes from mobile devices, and only 5% comes from desktop browsers (which is the portion tracked by services like Compete).
