Opera state of the Mobile Web have just released their October 2009 results and in it are the top 10 websites visited by users of operamini. Opera Mini happens to be the number one browser on mobile in South Africa. Unlike the OPA results which are a bit biased IMHO You Web AddiCT trusts the top 10 sites as by Opera Mini more than it does the OPA results. Why? Opera’s results include international heavyweights that almost everyone, my mom included, uses. There is also no need for a tracking code to have your mobile results measured by Opera Mini.

If you look at the number of Unique Monthly Visitors of the number 1 OPA mobile site and compare it too the number of mobile web users in South Africa it just doesn’t add up. If this blog, Web AddiCT(s);, were a member of the OPA we’d be just outside the top 10 for mobile traffic alone.
