3 reasons why your website should be mobile-friendly

These days, nearly everyone uses a mobile phone or tablet for web browsing instead of larger desktop computers. 

It is important that your website is ‘responsive’, also known as mobile-friendly, so that your site looks and works for everyone no matter what size of device they are using. There is nothing more frustrating than scrolling from left to right because a website doesn’t fit on the screen of your device. 

When we build websites, we make them ‘responsive’ – this means that it can automatically and correctly resize itself depending on the size of the device a person is using. 

Here are our top 3 reasons why your website should be responsive:

  1. Improve your visibility on Google and other search engines.  Search Engines favor mobile-friendly sites  and content. Search Engines started removing websites from search results and penalising websites that are not mobile-friendly. 
  2.  Gain more enquiries – a responsive website makes a better experience for your website visitor when on your site and if the site doesn’t fit their screen, they will likely leave and move on to the next site. 
  3. Trust – if your website doesn’t display correctly on all device types, then it shows you haven’t put thought into how potential customers will access your site.
