Why You Must Have Mobile Website Design
A few statistics are all it takes to show you why you must have mobile website design:
- Close to 75% of American adults own a smartphone or tablet
- On average, smartphone and tablet owners spend 5 hours every day on their device
- By 2019, Americans will spend more minutes per day on their mobile devices than TV1
Mobile devices are increasingly becoming the way that users access the Internet, search for the goods and services they want and engage with their social networks.
How Mobile Website Design Is Different
At the very least, mobile website design allows your website to be automatically scaled for easy viewing on smaller screens. But mobile website design can and should do so much more to deliver a great user experience and enhance SEO.
Mobile website design should also:
- Minimize images and graphics that distract users or make scanning/reading difficult
- Optimize images to ensure the fastest loading speeds
- Structure page layout and navigation to accommodate top-down scrolling and searching
Mobile website design also needs to implement the latest coding practices and data structures to boost search engine ranking potential.
