Regardless of whether you personally use your smartphone or tablet to browse the internet, the numbers don’t lie. Mobile devices already account for a large percentage of web traffic, and that number is steadily growing. The fact is, mobile is here to stay.
Mobile Is More Popular Than Ever
Over 35% of all website traffic comes from mobile devices. To put it bluntly, by not having a mobile-friendly website, you’re missing out on over a third of your traffic. A website that functions poorly on a smartphone or tablet will cause potential customers to become frustrated and leave, depriving you of traffic and driving it to your competition.
A responsive website is integral to ensuring that all of your users have a positive experience on your site.
Google Has Started to Promote It
As of April, Google has begun marking websites as “Mobile Friendly” on all of their search results. This lets users know that your site will display properly on their device before even visiting.
But that’s not all. Responsive design is now a ranking factor on mobile search results. The meaning of this? A responsive website can help drive extra traffic to your site by giving you a higher ranking in Google’s search results.
