YOUR VISITORS EXPECT MOBILE FRIENDLY WEB DESIGN
If you want to keep all users that visit your website on your website, then you need to ensure you have a mobile friendly web design. Recent statistics show that more than 40% of mobile users will click the back button and leave your website immediately if it is not mobile friendly.
What is a mobile friendly website… and why do you need one?
A mobile friendly web design uses a ‘one-website-fits-all’ approach.
A mobile friendly website means you don’t need to have multiple websites for different devices – the layout of your one website adapts to various sized screens.
That means you don’t have to manage different websites to keep them consistent. A mobile friendly website design will make sure there is no excessive horizontal scrolling, no need to continuously pinch the screen to zoom, no fiddly buttons or text that is too small to read.
Mobile friendly web design will keep visitors on your website for longer.
Internet users no longer view websites mostly from their desktop computers – they view websites from their mobile devices more than 50% of the time.
If you don’t already have a website that is easy to use on mobile devices then your website visitors will struggle when looking for the information they need. Over 40% of visitors who visit a mobile ‘unfriendly’ website hit the back button and leave.
Google rewards businesses that use mobile friendly web design.
Already a couple of years ago – at the end of April 2015 – Google updated their search algorithm to boost mobile friendly pages in Google’s search results.
That move makes absolute sense. If more than 40% of mobile users hit the back button and immediately leave a website that isn’t mobile friendly, Google need to make sure that their mobile search results show websites that users are likely to stay on – mobile friendly ones. Don’t get penalised – make sure your website is mobile friendly.
