70% of website traffic comes from mobile devices, and Google now uses a mobile-first indexing algorithm when displaying its search results. But how do you design a website that works on all devices, as well as a ‘traditional’ desktop? Read our top tips below…
What is a mobile-friendly website?
Simply put, a site that is designed and optimised for hand-held devices such as smartphones and tablets. A responsive site is one that adapts to the screen size it’s viewed on, giving the viewer an optimum experience however they’re viewing. If you’ve logged onto a non-responsive site on your mobile, you’ll know how annoying it can be to have to zoom in and out on content and scroll around the screen to find the button you’re looking for – in a lot of cases, you’d probably give up and find a site that works better for you. According to Google, 59 percent of shoppers say that being able to shop on their mobile devices is important when deciding which retailer or brand to buy from.
