You may know that your business needs a website to help reach new customers, but did you know that experts recommend building your website around mobile viewing first? That’s because over 60–70% of organic searches for products and services happen on a mobile phone.
And since many business owners start with a computer-screen version of their website, they may miss the crucial differences between computer and mobile viewing.
While a lot goes into an optimized website, we’ll cover the basics to give you a solid foundation for your business website.
Special note: Check out some of these tools to help you gauge the performance of your mobile site.
If you’ve researched SEO, you’ve likely seen the word “responsive” come up quite often. A responsive website design means that your website automatically rearranges key elements to fit the viewer’s screen.
Your website layout is the first impression you give your prospective client. And if images aren’t responsive to a mobile layout, the text is unmanageable, or colors strain reading, they’ll just move on.
So even though you’re likely creating, editing, and uploading your blog or web content on a computer, you should always create your content with mobile viewing in mind.
Pop-up ads are frustrating for most users, but they’re still used to help direct attention to ads or tools that create sales. But– the kind of pop-ups you use can negatively impact your search rankings.
Large corporations and big businesses spend lots of money on SEO, making it difficult for smaller companies to compete. So you need an ally to help you get your website live with optimized content soon!
