The pre-Christmas rush may be over – and what a rush it’s been if the record experiences of John Lewis are anything to go by – but retailers will merely be taking a breath before launching into what’s expected to be a Christmas Day and Boxing Day that are expected to set still more records, according to IMRG.

Today we also have our review of 2013. No top ten list for us, this year. Rather our site and community manager Aaron O’Dowling-Keane has looked to the Fibonacci sequence for her review of traffic on the Internet Retailing site this year.

Today’s guest comment comes from Adit Abhyankar of Visual IQ, who considers how an understanding of attribution can revitalise marketing strategies.

Finally, we look at a study that suggests the ‘hassle’ of returns may be putting shoppers off spending more over the internet, and report on the international growth seen by Mobile Fun in the run up to Christmas.

This is our final newsletter of 2013, and we’ll return on January 3 with our first of 2014. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all at Internet Retailing.
