Yahoo.ca websites got about 280,000 iPad visitors in March 2012, a captive audience for Yahoo! iPad Apps. Yahoo.ca’s estimated iPad visitor traffic is based on Mark Donovan’s November 15, 2011 blog post The Rise of Digital Omnivores stating that 2% of US-based web visits are from a Tablet PC. About 140,000 Yahoo! Canada Tablet web browsers likely watch video on an iPad, PlayBook, Samsung Galaxy, or Android Tablet PC. Web Video Winning Over More Canadian Viewers reports half of Canadian Tablet owners use iPads, PlayBooks, Samsung Galaxies, and Android mobile devices to watch video.
Yahoo! iPad visitor statistics are small versus the number of monthly unique visitors that Yahoo.ca websites get. www.yahoo.ca and http://qc.yahoo.com/ serve English and French Canadians. Yahoo! sites were visited by 14 million Canadians in March 2012 according to comScore Media Metrix. About 17% of adult Canadians owned a Tablet in 2012 based on Media Technology Monitor (MTM) research: Canadian Tablet ownership grew to 24.5% in 2013. There is an excellent MTM press release, Tablet ownership nearly tripled in Canada last year: report, about the growth in popularity of Tablet PCs in Canada. Tablet PC computer ownership in Canada market share estimates indicate that the number of Anglophone and Francophone Tablet owners in Canada will approach 2,105,030 by 2031. A higher percentage of Yahoo! Canada visitors will browse and watch video on Yahoo!’s network of sites on an iPad, PlayBook, Samsung Galaxy, or Android PC in the future.
