LOS ANGELES – July 14, 2015 – With 2015 more than halfway over, it has become impossible to ignore the fact that the majority of Internet users access the Internet via their mobile phones. With this in mind, it is imperative that a company has a website geared towards reaching these users. Google made a change to its search engine on April 21, 2015 that included a “Mobile Friendly” differentiation. This means Google searches now give preference to websites that are mobile friendly over those that are not. To find out if your site is up to current mobile standards, check it with Google’s Mobile Friendly Test tool.
Sublyme Web Design gives the following 3 tips to make sure that your website stands out and reaches the customers searching for it:
1. Responsive code is the way to go.
Some people use the terms “responsive” and “mobile site” interchangeably. However, they are two completely different things. A mobile site means the developer would create an actual website that was only visible when accessed via a mobile phone. It is designed for only one specific screen size (i.e. a mobile phone). The problem with mobile sites is the vast array of different mobile screen sizes that are out there. Responsive code uses CSS3 to add code to an existing site, which then goes by screen size to determine the layout of the site. The way the site looks is “responsive” to the screen size it is being viewed by. This allows your site to be easily accessed on any size screen without worrying about creating multiple sites per screen size.
2. Fast loading and easy to use.
The site MUST load fast! If your site takes longer than 3 seconds to load, you’ve most likely alienated your user from the start. Your user must be able to easily tap buttons and read fonts on a tiny screen. Having a larger font and more space to tap buttons will help your user navigate your site. You also want to be sure that any sliders and photo galleries that are on your site are also touch-friendly so that the user can easily swipe through and view what they are looking for.
3. Add a tap-friendly call-to-action.
Most users are on the go trying to look up information on your company. Your mobile friendly site should include an easy way for them to call you, look up pertinent company information such as hours, location/directions, and menus. If your customer is looking up your business on their mobile phone, it is likely that they are looking for a quick and easy way to find or contact you. Overall, the key to having a mobile friendly site is making your site easily accessible to someone looking at it from a tiny screen. This can be easily attained through optimizing your existing desktop website to be responsive.
