In today’s web world more and more people use mobile device to both surf and find who and what they are looking for. Folks do everything from checking out their social media, logging to read and send emails, and finding the local and national businesses they will make purchases from. All you have to do is sit in any doctors waiting room or attend a child’s sporting event to see just how much time people spend searching the web on their smart phones and tablets.
If you own a business its never been more important to have a proper mobile responsive website that meets Google’s criteria for mobile searches.
Many business people with older websites may not have a mobile website at all (BIG MISTAKE) or have a separate site designed for desktops and for mobile users. Obviously if you do not have any mobile site at all you will not be found on a mobile web search. But did you know that Google also doesn’t want you to have a separate mobile website? Yes its true that if someone searches for you separate mobile website directly by typing your URL address in the search bar you will come up. However if the customer types in “Dog Sitters Boston MA”, and you do not have the type of website that Google wants, your dog sitting business may not come up at all.
So what is it exactly that Google wants? And what type of site to they prefer you to have? It is called a responsive site. This is a single site that is coded in a way to work on both desktops and mobile devices.
What is responsive design?
A responsive design means a website that has been built so all of the content of the site stays the same on a desktop or any type of mobile device.
With today’s technology this is simple and affordable to achieve.
