Smartphones, tablets, and desktops are all viewing your site today, but did you know that now over 50% of those views likely come from mobile searches? In fact, depending on your industry, you may be losing valuable new business because your site is not user friendly from a smartphone. If you’re local you are in even more trouble because the searchers for local are serious buyers. Even the Google experts were surprised by the rapid adoption and the staggering mobile numbers.
It’s estimated that nearly 90% of local searchers take action within 5 hours of searching and 50% of mobile queries are for LOCAL businesses.
Okay so now you are listening… I hope. 🙂 What should you do is get a responsive design upgrade to your website if you haven’t already and ensure that it’s mobile friendly. Starting this month you will see Google start to showcase this to searchers. They gave explicit advice at the 2013 SMX East Conference to get responsive quick. That was 5 years ago, so if you are still unresponsive, you are being punished by Google in search. If you need a lead on some great local developers just ask us.
