Should My Website Be Mobile Friendly

Yes.  Your website should absolutely be mobile friendly as it has become a critical part of having an online presence.  Google states;

If you haven’t made your website mobile-friendly, you should.

The majority of users coming to your site are likely to be using a mobile device.

In May 2015 mobile search (on Google) overtook traditional desktop search and the gap continues to widen as more and more of us do our searching through tablets and smartphones.  Google has placed a lot of emphasis on this and now conduct separate searches for mobile and desktop.  So your website could rank on page 1 for a particular term in desktop search but appear much lower in the mobile results.   You could be missing out on large numbers of website visitors through not having a mobile friendly website.

mobile-testThe following criteria determine whether a page is mobile friendly

  • Avoids software that is not common on mobile devices, like Flash
  • Uses text that is readable without zooming
  • Sizes content to the screen so users don’t have to scroll horizontally or zoom
  • Places links far enough apart so that the correct one can be easily tapped

If you don’t know whether your website is mobile friendly you can test it using the Google Mobile Friendly Test  which will analyse your webpage and report if it has mobile friendly design.

If your site does not have mobile friendly design the test results will display the areas which need to be worked on to ensure the site is mobile friendly.  Here at Plinkfizz our top quality web design ensures your website is mobile friendly from the outset.
