Our 10 Most Popular Mobile Marketing Columns Of 2013

QR Codes are dead and Responsive Design is controversial. Those are two of the takeaways from our most popular Mobile Marketing columns in 2013. There’s no denying that Mobile is one of most explosive and fast-changing sectors in digital marketing, and we’re thankful to have had such knowledgeable experts share their views and insights about its development throughout the year.

ml_mob_mktg We had the benefit this year of bringing aboard columnists who’d been writing for Search Engine Land’s mobile column, so we were able to explore more of the search-related consequences of mobile marketing decisions. Our expert contributors also tackled the popular subject of mobile application marketing and examined how new technologies — like Apple’s iOS 7 and IDFA — are affecting marketers.

Following are our top 10 columns on Mobile Marketing published in 2013, as measured by pageviews gathered via Google Analytics.
