Why your website MUST be optimised for mobiles Why your website MUST be optimised for mobiles


Google Updates


Not many people know that Google recently updated its indexing algorithm. Now websites that are optimised for mobiles are ranked higher up the list than ones that aren’t. Simply put, if your website isn’t optimised for mobile devices YOU WILL BE LOSING SALES.

On-The-Go Internet

More and more people are accessing the internet on-the-go. There was a time when the web was slow and huge loading times became cumbersome on image heavy sites. Broadband sped this up and creators went wild with content and they uploaded hundreds of images with a mass of megabytes behind them. Our direct connection to the router could handle that, however, we are now facing a time where image heavy sites must be scaled back. People are often accessing the internet on-the-go through their smartphones or tablets. This has slowed down internet access again and research has found that if a website takes longer than 3 seconds to load people will not use it.


What Users Want

A mobile site is a completely different beast to a desktop one. Users want bitesize manageable chunks of information on a mobile and it needs to be as sleek as possible. Studies have shown that 90% of visitors to your site will later visit your URL through computer means if they like it’s mobile companion. In opposition to this, if your site is hard to navigate on-the-go people are highly unlike to visit it’s desktop counterpart.
