A common question surrounding business owners today is, “how important is it…for my website to be mobile responsive?” Google made their official announcement back in 2015
“Starting April 21, 2015, Google Search will be expanding its use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in Google Search results. Users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results optimized for their devices,” read more here https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/6196932?hl=en
Mobile Responsive Websites are Not Optional
Clearly, having a mobile optimized site will help your search rankings and more importantly, make “surfing” your content easier for prospects. Business owners, should be aware of the implications and take appropriate action, as Google’s new algorithm encourages businesses to think about mobile first.
Mobile responsive sites are in demand, especially with mobile taking over desktop search. Today, it is estimated that over 80% of internet searches are conducted on mobile devices. So, my question is “why is your website not mobile friendly?”
Developing websites that are mobile-friendly is more than just cross-browser; it’s about cross-platform. Web designers living in the past create two websites, one for mobile and one for desktop. We highly recommend against this practice as you can trigger duplicate content issues. The best websites function across all platforms; text and images are easily rendered displaying a flawless user experience.
