In today’s day and age, optimizing your website and content for mobile is a must. In 2016, mobile internet usage surpassed computer (desktop and laptop) usage for the first time, with that trend increasing to the present. Having a mobile-friendly website is extremely important because of this.
Over half of all website traffic worldwide now takes place via mobile devices (mainly smartphones); as of March 2021, mobile has taken the lead at over 54% in terms of market share worldwide. Further, the number of smartphone users worldwide has surpassed the three billion mark and is forecast to grow significantly over the next few years. These statistics support making your website mobile-friendly.
What makes a site mobile-friendly?
A website is considered to be mobile-friendly if it loads quickly and correctly on a mobile device, presenting content that is readable without the need to pinch and zoom; a clean and clear display is key for a mobile-friendly website. Further, it is mobile-friendly if it allows users to navigate easily and helps them achieve their online tasks effectively and efficiently. The best mobile-friendly websites also are not reliant on a mobile operating system to function.
Why is mobile SEO important?
Mobile SEO ensures that your mobile website offers the best possible presentation of your content to users accessing the site on smartphones or other mobile devices. If your website is mobile-friendly, your search engine ranking will be higher than those that are not; this is important because high rankings mean more immediate traffic and in greater numbers. Mobile-friendly website design is important for creating a good user experience for visitors; without a good user experience, you will miss out on traffic which will hurt your search engine rankings and decrease opportunities for you to build your online following and conversions.
