Your Customers Search the Web on their Phones.  Is Your Website Mobile First?

The switch has happened.  As of 2019, 52% of all internet traffic is on a phone.

Just take a moment and watch people walking down a crowded street.  How many do you see on their phones?  What about at home on the couch?  How many of your family members are looking at their phones, even when the TV is on?  

Your own experience tells the story better than any statistic: mobile is king.

Is your website putting your business in the best position to capitalize on this seismic shift in how almost everyone shops?

Responsive? Mobile First?  What Gives?

Many modern websites are responsive.  That's great!  A responsive website is designed for a desktop computer, but resizes itself to still display on a mobile device.  This can help your website avoid Google's wrath.

But a Mobile First website is different.  As the name implies – mobile first websites are designed for mobile phones.  They look great on a desktop computer, too.  But, they are perfectly designed for your customer's phone.

For a decade, mobile first websites were an afterthought when designer's built a site. But, times have changed.  AND SO HAS GOOGLE!

Google Ranks Mobile First Sites Higher in Search

That's worth repeating: Google ranks mobile first websites higher in their search results.

Why?  Because mobile first websites load faster on mobile devices.  Google is following their customers from their desktops to their phones.  And, they are offering you the opportunity to join the great migration.  A mobile first website can now be the major factor between your company's website appearing on the first page of Google results.  And, when it comes to Google results, the old saying has never been more true: if you're not first, you're last.
