Having a mobile friendly website is key to success on the internet. Mobile website traffic has eclipsed laptop and desktop traffic and Google recently made how mobile-friendly your site is a big factor in determining their search engine ranking. Having a mobile-friendly website helps you dramatically with search engine rankings.
At Traverse City Web Design, we create beautiful, mobile-friendly websites that work well on desktop computers, tablets and smartphones of all shapes and sizes. We also take sites that are not mobile-friendly and put them on mobile-friendly website platforms.
Why is Mobile Web Design Important?
- One half of all local searches are performed on mobile devices
- 46% of consumers are unlikely to return to a mobile site if it didn’t work right on their last visit
- Over 1/3 of Facebook’s users access Facebook Mobile; 50% of Twitter’s users use Twitter Mobile (we manage both Twitter and Facebook accounts for clients!)
- From April to September in 2011, mobile email opens increased 34%, while web mail and PC opens decreased by 11% and 9.5%, respectively
Traverse City Web Design Creates Mobile-Friendly Websites
At Traverse City Web Design, every new website we make is mobile-friendly. This is standard.
Additionally, we often take websites that aren’t mobile-friendly, and rebuild them on new mobile-friendly web design frameworks. This allows you to maintain the look and feel of your existing website, but gain all the advantages of a more robust site that will look better on smartphones and tablets.
Creating a new, mobile-friendly website or upgrading your existing website to a mobile-friendly framework will bring you more web traffic, better search engine rankings and ultimately, a better website.
