Penetration of the mobile Internet has increased its visibility worldwide. This enables analysis of detailed time-dimensional user behavior data. It also increases the industry need to identify and retain mobile users with strong loyalty to a particular mobile Web site. The author proposes an intramonth-scale revisit classification method for identifying intramonth-scale, revisiting mobile users. The author performs a case study and the result shows that the proposed method shows 87 % classifier accuracy. The author discusses a trade-off between classifier accuracy and a true positive ratio.
