Since the dawn of smartphones, more and more people are accessing, and searching the internet via their mobile device. In fact, using the internet on a smartphone or tablet, has become more popular than accessing the internet on a desktop computer or laptop. More than half of all internet traffic now comes from smartphones and tablets.
Beginning on April 21, 2015, Google declared a new search ruling for mobile friendly websites, giving them higher priority over websites that are not mobile friendly. Because more and more people are searching for businesses on mobile devices, Google wants to show mobile friendly websites in mobile search results, for a better user-friendly experience. Having a mobile friendly website means a greater priority in search results, creating more exposure for your business than your competitors that do not have a mobile friendly website.
According to Google’s latest data report, about consumers and their mobile searches, shows a third of mobile searches are related to the user’s location. Whether a person is searching for a place to eat or drink, car repair or another form of service, people are searching for what is close to them. Over three quarters of people who search on their smartphone for a nearby business, end up visiting that business within a day, and nearly half of those searches result in a purchase! All of this as a result of having a mobile friendly website for your business.
