5 Steps To Make Your Site Mobile-Friendly




Having a mobile-friendly site goes a long way in determining your site's popularity and ranking in search engines. Statistics has it that most of the traffics generated on top sites in the world are from mobile phones. A toll was carried out and users commented that sites that aren't mobile-friendly, makes them look untrustworthy. Also a non-mobile friendly site can prevent Google bots from crawling and indexing your site. I have written a short article on how you can make your site mobile friendly and mobile ready.



1. TEST YOUR SITE

Take the Mobile-Friendly Test to see if your site is mobile-friendly. If not, it’s time to go mobile. If you need a professional website designer to make your mobile view look wonderful and be very responsive CONTACT US . If you have issues with the tool, ensure Google is crawling your site correctly. To take the mobile friendly test follow the link below:

2. CONSIDER THE USER
Integrate mobile into your core business strategy if you have a company's page and build a site that is useful for your mobile customers. If you desire to grow your audience you have to really have mobile users in mind.

3. WHO SHOULD BUILD IT?
 Do you need help from a developer or will you work on your own? If you're a really good web designer or programmer, then carry-on with editing your blog/website HTML codes using CSS or HTML/JAVASCRIPT. But be careful not to integrate a code that would make Google robots reject your site from been indexed.  CONTACT US if you want a professional designer to make your website/blog look and feel more professional.

4. DON’T FORGET ABOUT SPEED
 Users don’t like to wait for content to load. Did you know that some impatient users would exit your page if it takes more than 4sec to load? Don't go about choking up your site with adverts as this can lead to a higher bounce rate. Use PageSpeed Insights to review and improve the speed of your site.

5. CLEAN AND CLEAR NAVIGATION SYSTEM
This is a very crucial factor if you want active readers to remain on your blog, as every reader would want to easily surf through pages, related posts and articles without any hassles. I personally would recommend the use of numbered navigation systems and related posts thumbnails.

You can also use the Mobile Usability Report to monitor specific pages for usability issues. Also create threads asking users if they enjoy surfing through your pages and ask them for insights on areas they are finding difficulties on your Blog/Website.
