Category: Mobile Friendly
How many times a day do you use your mobile device? Probably more than you care to admit but mobile devices are probably the one thing you couldn’t live without. We check them first thing in the morning for weather or traffic and last thing at night for social updates and news. Then you have all that time in between when looking for a place to eat or proving someone wrong in an argument with a simple Google search.
We use our mobile phones more now than ever. In fact, each day 25 Quintilian (yes Quintilian) bites of mobile data are used. That may not mean too much but imagine this. The equivalent amount of data would fill enough books stacked on top each other to reach the moon and back and this is happening every day.
Around 800 hours of snapchat images are uploaded every minute and there are over 1.79 Billion users on Facebook
With all of this in mind it is now more important than ever for your website to be easy to use on mobile and for users to find your website when using a mobile. If your website isn’t mobile friendly then you are losing business and potentially harming your SEO and organic rankings. If you don’t believe us, here are some stats from Google than emphasise this:
• Mobile search has overtaken desktop search
• Nearly one third of all mobile searches are related to locations
• People are five times more likely to leave a mobile site that isn’t mobile friendly
• Nearly half of all users will leave a mobile site if the page doesn’t load within 3 seconds
• 9 out of 10 people sat they use multiple screens when looking for services
