What is a Mobile Website?
A Mobile Website is a version of your regular website that is able to be seen and used by mobile and smart-phone users. The formating of a mobile website is much different than that of your regular website. The formatting must allow all text, navigation, structure, and functions to be seen and easy to use regardless of the size, resolution, type, and model of smart-phone the consumer is using.
What does a Mobile Website consist of?
Because of the limited spacing and smaller screen sizes of mobile smart-phones than that of a computer monitor or laptop screen, many businesses choose to condense the number of pages on their mobile website in relation to their regular website. This can be a good or bad thing, depending upon how the mobile website navigation structure is set up. Larger (more pages) mobile websites, just as with a regular website give you the ability to optimize and be noticed in the search engine for more keywords and search phrases. Your mobile website can contain virtually all the features that are contained in your regular website, depending on the version of software and use of code the designer uses to develop your mobile website.
How do you make a Mobile Website effective?
If you use an online template mobile website program, it can be a huge waste of money. Ideally you want your mobile website to visually reflect your regular website; have the ability to optimize your mobile website just as effectively as your regular website; and work without linking and navigation problems. Online mobile website temple programs will often have deficiencies regarding all of these issues and more (that you may never be aware of as a non-professional mobile website designer). Everything that is done to make your regular website effective should be done for your mobile website as well.
The biggest mistake many businesses make with regards to their mobile website is they do not take their mobile website as serious as their regular website. This can often work against all of the efforts a company put in to develop and optimize their regular website. When mobile smart-phone user clicks on a link of your website, if the website has the proper redirect code to send the visitor to your mobile website, all the website traffic for your website by that visitor will be attributed to your mobile website.
Why a Mobile Website is Important?
If you do not have a mobile website when mobile smart-phone users go to your website, the text may appear so small it is unreadable without zooming in. When the visitor has to zoom in to read your content on their smart-phone they have to "read, scroll right, scroll back left, scroll down, and continue this process all they way down the page", which diminishes the user experience and the user will likely close your website and find a website that they can read without this complication." Additionally, Google announced in the summer of 2013 that they will not be developing a mobile phone search engine, and they will penalize websites in the search engines that do not have a mobile website or responsive website for the website visitor. Statistics show that over 85% of the public uses the Internet, and according to a recent study by BIA/Kelsey, nearly all consumers (97 percent) now use Online media (whether it is Online or on smart phones) when researching products or services in their local area. If you do not have a mobile website or responsive website, this translates to up to 82.45% of your local population that may never use your services you when they search for a product or service in your industry.
