Mobile searches are king and now it's time to make sure your small business website is mobile too.
If you are like most businesses you probably did a 'whole website re-do' a few years ago and you are now realizing... it's time to do it again.
Why? Because mobile devices have taken over and many of the websites we made back then look pretty on the desktop but they stink on mobile.
Believe it or not ~ 63% of internet search happens on a mobile phone.
And even more interesting ... Google has for the first time specifically stated that if your site is not mobile friendly, it will suffer in mobile search results. Ouch!
Here is the criteria for a mobile friendly website that Google has laid out:
- The text or words on a website should be easy to read on a mobile device without zooming in.
- Any buttons or links should be spaced far enough apart and large enough to be easily clicked by tapping on the screen.
- The content, pictures and text, should resize itself automatically according to the devices' screen.
- Eliminate the use of programs or software that cannot be viewed from a mobile device like 'flash'.
