The fact is, not everybody has access to a computer. In all matters of life, mobile phones and devices have replaced the necessity of a computer. We can access just about any website, any time, anywhere. That is, of course, if that website is mobile friendly. There are plenty of other pros of being mobile friendly with your web design.
The use of mobile devices isn’t going anywhere. In fact, by 2019, 79% of all Internet activity will be from mobile phones. That’s a pretty crazy number when you consider all that’s been within the last 10 years or so. Always take that into consideration while designing your website.
The Pros of Being Mobile Friendly
You’ll have more reach
Since most of your audience likely stumbled upon your website from their phones, it’s nice to have a reliable connection and design for them. The experience is vital! If the website is mobile friendly, it’ll be more accessible on a mobile device. This means the reader will stay on the website longer from their phone, and you’ll get to reap the benefits of being mobile friendly.
Google ranks mobile usability as the third most important of all the factors. The Googlebot has the ability to decide if your website is mobile friendly or not. If it isn’t, you can lose your ranking as number one website. In short, Google prioritizes mobile friendly sites on search results to ensure a better user experience for searchers.
Recently, web designers have started to use what’s called ‘responsive design’ when it comes to user experience. What it means is that the screen adapts to whatever device is being used, whether it be a desktop or a mobile device. Other companies like Amazon have developed their own apps to make up for the complicated user-friendliness of their website when translated onto a mobile phone. It’s all in the name of UX. Your website should follow suit.
