Mobile browsing accounts for about half of worldwide web trafficYes, you read that correctly. Approximately 50% of the websites viewed from around the world are being viewed on mobile devices. A large number of your customers are viewing your website on a smartphone. A website that requires a lot of pinching and zooming, invites them to leave immediately - potentially costing you a sale.
Makes your business look more professionalIt is important to set yourself apart from your competition. Your website provides you with another means to do this. If you are competing for a potential customer’s business and they are comparing websites. If one business has an outdated website that looks bad on their phone, and the other has a modern and mobile-friendly website - their decision very likely will be swayed. In many cases, your website is the first impression your business provides to potential customers - make sure you look professional.
Mobile-friendly websites rank higher on search enginesSearch engines like Google have made it clear if you have a mobile-friendly website you have opportunities to improve your search rank.
This is done for a couple of reasons:
- A mobile-friendly website is providing a better experience to 50% of the web (as previously described). Therefore, to search engines, you are likely providing modern and up-to-date content.
- Sites built for mobile are usually optimized to run faster and more efficiently. Faster websites are also given a ranking boost by search engines for providing a better quality experience.
If you have a website that is unattractive, looks really small on a mobile device, or is really hard to use, you should consider a complete website refresh. Remember, your website is an extension of your business, and in many cases is the first impression your users see.
