As you walk down the crowded street, have you ever noticed the overwhelming majority of people glued to their phones? Perhaps they are texting, or browsing the web, or even playing some new game with kittens and cupcakes – but one thing stands out in your mind. The future is mobile. Mobile devices now number in the billions, and with it comes mobile browsing. Is your site ready for this?
Having a mobile-friendly site is standard nowadays. With so many mobile devices in use, mobile responsiveness is a pretty big deal.
Why Must We Conform To “Mobile-ness”?
Ever since Google rolled out its mobile friendly update earlier this year, mobile friendliness has increased on the ranking factor list. So what does that mean for you? Well if you’re one of the many that have been keeping up-to-date with the mobile trend, kudos to you- but what about those who haven’t? Well, they need to keep up with the changing tides! The Googs is now prioritizing mobile friendly sites.
When you think about your site, does user experience come to mind? Positive user experience is the most important factor for any site. How many times have you tried to browse a desktop only site on a mobile device, only to hurl your phone against a wall in frustration because you can’t see the “login” button? Don’t be ashamed, you’re not the only one. Don’t fall prey to a high bounce rate because of a non-responsive site.
If your goal is to stay relevant in search for your business, then providing a mobile responsive site is essential to keep up with your competition in this mobile age. Give the masses what they’re clamoring for – Mobile friendliness for all.
