In order to succeed in this dynamic market, retailers and brands must ensure they are addressing relevance throughout the channels where people are shopping, ensuring a seamless experience across the interplay of device, context and consumer behavior.”

For this study, RichRelevance analyzed 3.4 billion online shopping sessions between April and December 2011.
