Mobile Optimization- A Necessity for Website Success

mobile optimization

Innovative Solutions’ website is mobile optimized- providing easy reading and navigation for the mobile user.

What is Mobile Optimization?

Website traffic is no longer limited to desktop users. Mobile phone and tablet users have become a major audience in online browsing. As the mobile revolution pushes on, mobile users make up almost thirty percent of search queries.1 With increased traffic from tablets and phones, it is absolutely crucial that your website is mobile optimized.

Mobile optimization means that the website is optimized for the mobile user. Long gone are the days of scrolling and clicking with a mouse. Thumbs are the new way of surfing and navigating websites. When buttons are too close and text is too small, users are more likely to leave the site altogether and move on. A poorly mobile optimized site means the user is required to pinch the screen to zoom or rotate their device sideways to fit the website onto their screen. Without optimization, users often fat finger buttons when navigating- preventing them from getting to their desired page and interacting with the website in general. Filling out contact forms, viewing galleries, and using the navigation bar easily are all important elements in a mobile friendly site. In many cases,mobile devices are incapable of displaying the entirety of a website without optimization. In essence, a mobile optimized site means an easy reading and navigation experience for a growing group of internet users.

Google & Mobile Optimization

While Google makes up over 60% of desktop searches (in relation to Bing, Yahoo, and AOL), more than half of Google’s searches come from a mobile device.2 It is not surprising given that the internet is at our fingertips 24/7. In fact, Google is the fourth most used app on mobile devices!

In 2015, Google announced that they would factor in website mobile optimization into their search results.3 In other words, sites that were mobile friendly received a boost in their ranking in comparison to innovativesites that were not optimized. When searching from a mobile device, Google tells the user which site has been optimized in the site description.
This means that your site must be mobile optimized to compete in the world’s most popular search engine’s rankings.

Excellent service. We have been with Innovative since the launching of our site. They not only designed the entire site with the functionality we wanted, but have hosted it reliably no matter how high the traffic spikes. I would recommend Innovative to anyone looking for a professional, reliable and very responsive team.

I used Dustin at Innovative Solutions to initially just host my website. After working with him I decided to do a pretty significant makeover on my site. He did a great job, was super responsive and has Fletcher in the Design Department to help with graphics and such. He answered inquiries after hours and is very reasonably priced. I have used quite a few web people over the years and Innovative Solutions is undoubtedly who I will continue to use.

I owned the company for over 20 years, and Dustin treats customers in a very courteous and professional manner. That why I'm going back to Innovative for help with our latest personal web project.
