smart phone

Did you know most internet browsing is done on smartphones? So you have website, it better be “mobile-friendly”, as they are great attribute to provide and are also vital to the success of your website. Mobile optimization is important for several reasons, such as search engine optimization, usability and speed optimization.

There are two routes you can take when choosing the best web design for your business, responsive web design and a separate mobile website. For those of you that don’t know exactly what the difference is, here’s a good explanation:

Responsive Web Design and Mobile Websites

A responsive design site is a website that will change in width and layout according to the size of the screen and type of device you are viewing it on. For example, is you were to read a website on your phone is portrait mode, and the decided to rotate it into landscape mode, the design of the website would change and adapt to the way you are viewing it. Mobile websites on the other hand, are a dedicated version of the website in smaller version. This type of mobile website is usually needs to be maintained separately and have a different set of code base.

Responsive Web Design

Pros:

  • Easier to manage
  • One site for several devices
  • Recommended by Google
  • Lower in Cost
  • Simple SEO

Cons:

  • Some older devices don’t support responsive web techniques
  • Unoptimized for mobile and slow loading times

Mobiles Websites

Pros:

  • Optimized for a mobile user
  • Improved usability
  • Quick to implement

Cons:

Before you choose the option best suits your company, you should first establish the purpose of your website. Be sure that you keep your target audience and business goals in mind. Also keep in mind that no matter which type of web design you choose, it will be viewed on a mobile devices.

3 Reasons You Must have a Mobile Friendly Website | Web Design, Corona CA

Almost everyone in this day of age has a smartphone, and it’s become one of the preferred methods to browse the web. Most people won’t even leave their homes without their smartphone. Mobile devices are used on a daily basis for tasks such as sending texts, getting directions, emailing, listening to music, and of course to accessing the internet. About 60% of internet searches are done on mobile devices now, and that number will continue to rise as the mobile world keeps on advancing. The following list includes three major reasons why you must have a mobile friendly website:

  • Google Says So- We use our phones for just about everything, such as searching the internet for restaurants, hotels or even specific products. If your website isn’t mobile friendly it won’t be coming up in Google's search anytime soon. Now the Google has changed its algorithm they are penalizing sites that aren’t mobile friendly, which means your site won’t be coming up as well as it did before if it’s mobile friendly.
  • It’s What Customers Want- As I stated earlier, about 60% of internet searches are done on mobile devices now. If your visitors has to zoom in and out constantly to navigate, I can almost guarantee this will decrease your visitors overall experience. Make sure with either have a responsive site or separate mobile site for the best user experience.
  • You’ll Lose Business- If you’re only using a standard website you’re probably losing business, if you already haven’t that is. Several people are ditching computers or laptops for their mobile devices. Don’t let your website take a toll on your business by not being mobile friendly.

Don’t limit yourself or your visitors by not having a mobile friendly website! If you’re interested in converting to a mobile friendly website, call Jelly Websites in Corona, CA at 888-614-6686 today or visit our website www.jellywebsites.com for more information.

Googling on Mobile Devices Outranks PCs in the U.S. For First Time| Web Design Corona, CA

Mobility concept

When Google first came about, people would have to use the search engine on their personal computers from their homes or offices. For the first time, Googles search engine has been getting more search requests on mobile devices rather than on personal computers in the U.S.

This has shown how dramatically internet searches have changed since 2007. That was when the first Apple iPhone was released, which lead to many other mobile phone companies to release similar devices. Smartphones have made it much easier for people to stay connected to the internet, no matter where they may be.

While this major change has effected some computer and technology companies that are tied to PCs, Google has been able get along just fine since its search engine and other services come standard in its Android mobile operating system.

Google says that while its normal ad prices are going down because marketers don’t want to pay as much for small ads on smartphones, their mobile ad prices are going up. The reason for mobile ad prices rising is because almost everyone uses their phone for mobile searches these days, and while searching a company can connect with a potential customer the very moment they start their search. As Jerry Dischler, a Google Inc. vice president said “The future of mobile is now”.

Starting today, April 21st, 2015, Google has made a major change to the mobile search algorithm. The change is going to affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide. This algorithm change is predicted to have such a massive impact on websites that are not mobile-friendly, it’s even been given the nickname “Mobile-geddon”.

Google is now going to be favoring websites that are mobile-friendly and ranking them higher in mobile search results. Let’s say for example, your sites text is too small and links aren’t easy to open with the tap of a finger, it’s likely to get penalized. You’re mobile-friendly website should include large text, easy-to-click links and should conform to whatever screen it is viewed on.

Now that 60% of traffic now comes from mobile devices your company’s website better be up to date and mobile-friendly. Google wants for users to have the best experience possible and the change is designed to help users find search results that conform to their mobile screen. This change will greatly affect companies that don’t have mobile-friendly websites, potentially slowing traffic and affecting revenue for several websites that rely on search results.

Is your site mobile-friendly and ready for Mobile-geddon?

Don’t make the mistake of not going mobile- friendly. For more information regarding mobile-friendly websites, contact Jelly Websites in Corona, CA at 888-614-6686 or visit our website at www.jellywebsites.com.
