do understand, Google is trying to put mobile users first
As we all know Google is the #1 search engine and this is what's happening when they want to change . . . . YOU
If you’re site is misconfigured for smartphone users or you just simply don’t have a mobile-friendly option for consumers you may see a drop in your rankings if you’re not compliant with their Mobile Optimization Guidelines.
Let’s face it…keeping up with The Google is a challenge.Even when they take a stance like they did with their announcement of their preference for responsive design they leave many people confused and asking a lot of questions due to some of the contradictory statements they’re making.
Sometimes it feels like even Google is trying to figure this “mobile” thing out. Google makes an announcement that you should use responsive design. Most websites using responsive design deal with slow load times which inherently have negative SEO consequences meaning your ranking is negatively impacted. To make matters worse there is a site speed penalty for mobile in the works per an announcement by Google’s Matt Cutts. So, it seems like Google wants us to have a responsive site that loads fast. Google is trying to put the mobile user first as many businesses should be doing but as you’ve most likely experienced, we (the consumer) won’t tolerate slow loading sites. What does this mean to your business? In an effort to help us all navigate these new waters and avoid slamming our heads into our desks, Google has shared their recommendations as well as some of the most common mistakes when building a mobile site.
We know that 74% of consumers will 5 seconds for a web page to load on their mobile device before abondoning the site. We also know that 71% of mobile browsers expect web pages to load almost a quickly or faster as web pages on their desktop computes.
Here are the other reasons besides the want of the #1 search engine, why your business needs a mobile-ready website today
It's the fastest growing communications channel in history
Consumers are using their smartphones for everything – information, news, entertainment, shopping, research, purchasing decisions, finding local areas of interest, and much more. According to Eric Schmidt, Google’s CEO, the mobile Web is growing eight times faster than the first wave of online Internet adoption. And consider this fact from Google – 85 percent of Americans are never more than three feet from their cell phones!
Customers carry their smartphones everywhere and use them regularly to make immediate decisions and to take quick action. The very nature of consumer behavior mandates that your business have a mobile presence so you’re accessible anytime/anywhere your customers need you.
. Quick access
Typically, mobile website visitors are looking for quick access to your business. They want a phone number, a contact form so they can leave a message, your hours of operation, directions to your business, coupons, menu choices and pricing.
Leverage mobile Internet traffic
Having a mobile website makes your company easily accessible to a growing mobile audience. Many consumers make travel arrangements or restaurant reservations exclusively by mobile phone. Don’t give customers-on-the-run an excuse to browse elsewhere.
. Mobile websites are device independent
Mobile websites reach all audiences no matter what smartphone they use. Every smartphone has a browser – so users can immediately find you on the mobile web.
Easy for mobile users to read your content
Websites designed for the desktop/laptop don’t work well on mobile devices. Asking your users to pinch and zoom to read your content is unnecessary and dilutes your message. A mobile-ready site makes finding answer to questions quick, easy and friendly.
. Your competition
If your competition has a mobile website, you need one as soon as possible too – or risk losing your customers to businesses with a mobile presence.
Make a bolder statement and stronger brand impression
Your business has likely invested significant dollars and resources into branding … so don’t let that go to waste with a sloppy mobile presentation.
Higher search rankings
A business with both a mobile-friendly website and a standard site enjoys a distinct advantage over businesses that do not have a mobile site. Google, Yahoo!, Bing, Yellow Pages and other search engines and directories rank mobile-optimized businesses higher than their competition.
