Did you know over 46% of consumers consider web design a deciding factor of a company’s credibility or brand? Unfortunately today, having a web presence isn’t enough to stand out anymore. Your company needs a website that’s optimized for a mobile user experience…
Now Google, one of the world’s leading search engines, rolled out a new algorithm on April 21, 2015. It is now penalizing websites and pages if they are not optimized for a mobile experience. Google explains, in order for a site to be considered “mobile-friendly” that site has to be readable without tapping and zooming, its tap targets need to be spaced out appropriately. Additionally, your website/pages should avoids unplayable content or horizontal scrolling. In plain English… the site simply needs to be easily usable from a mobile device – whether that be a smart phone or tablet.
This is pretty important seeing 88% of Americans use the internet as their primary tool for product and service research before making buying decisions.
