The Mobile Friendly Factor : How Nice is Your Website?

The Mobile Friendly Factor : How Nice is Your Website?

Mobile-Responsiveness matters more for your website than ever.

According to the latest tech research, and as diagrammed below by a Morgan Stanley survey, mobile internet users have officially exceeded desktop users.

This is huge.  It means that more people are looking at your website on a phone or tablet than on a laptop.

So, how does your site look?

Have you ever visited a website containing terribly tiny text you have to zoom in on, then scroll left and right to read? You try to click on the menu links, but your finger’s too freaking big and you end up on the wrong page? Yeah! It’s SO annoying. And, Google recognizes that struggle.

Responsiveness matters for good search engine results.

Google places higher emphasis on websites that are mobile responsive. Google wants to make sure that you have the best online experience.  Having a site that immediately adjusts to the smaller screens and various uses of mobile devices ensures that.
