Is your Site Mobile Friendly?

Google, Mobile, Search Engines - Google, SEO Info , , Share this post

Google has shared that a majority of its searches are now mobile-driven and that they’re migrating toward a mobile-first index in the upcoming months. When doing a technical SEO audit, it is now critical to not only review how the desktop Googlebot accesses your site content but also how Google’s smartphone crawler does it.

What Google Wants

At this time of year, many SEOs are looking forward, and, referring to an SEO best practices post for 2017, Google’s Gary Illyes complimented those who suggested mobile is the big drive for 2017.

The following are three key stats that I have lifted from Google’s promotional materials that clearly illustrate the importance of mobile optimization:
  1. Today, more people search on mobile phones than computers.
  2. People are five times more likely to leave a site if it isn’t mobile-friendly.
  3. Over half of mobile users will leave a website if it takes longer than three seconds to load.

Because more people search on mobile than on computers, mobile generates more page views. If your site is not mobile-friendly, users are less likely to stick around. And if your site is slow, they may not even wait for the page to load.

Add in the unreliability of mobile data networks here and your site has to be a mean, lean mobile-friendly machine, or you may not even get a shot at that customer.
