It wasn't that long ago when having a mobile friendly website felt cutting edge. However, in 2023, it is now necessary to have a mobile friendly website. Google and other search engines prioritize sites that are mobile friendly, since a large majority of web traffic comes from mobile devices. So if you do not have a mobile friendly website, then it might be time to upgrade! Let's take a look at some of the great benefits of upgrading your website to become mobile friendly.
A website with a responsive design will lead to a better user experience, regardless of whether users are visiting using a desktop, smartphone, or tablet. When optimized properly, responsive websites simply load much faster than a standard mobile version. Delays in loading speed can significantly impact the satisfaction of users and can make them leave and never return, which then hurts the SEO of your website due to a higher bounce rate. So a slow website can cost you both new customers who do not like the slow waiting speed, as well as existing ones who might want to find a quicker option.
When you update to a more responsive website and get more speed, your site will look better to those who land on it and it will be more welcoming to newer users. And when people have a positive experience on your website, they will be more likely to return to use your website. Thus, helping grow your business.
The Core Web Vitals, which is a feature on Google Search Console, updates you about the user experience and how it may be impacting your website. When it comes down to it, if there are a few websites with different pages of similar content and services, the algorithm will show the user the website and the subsequent page that loads the fastest and is optimized the best. So understanding the core web vitals can help you build your website. At MSEDP, we can help decipher the features of Google Search Console with our professional SEO services. Our staff has years of experience handling organic search engine optimization campaigns and can help you improve your website.
Speaking of SEO, it is easier to implement and maintain a website that is mobile responsive. In the old days, many websites would have a desktop version and a slimmed down mobile version, which means you are spending twice the time maintaining what is essentially two different sites. By having one website that is mobile friendly, you are saving time and money. Having a responsive website will let you invest more time in getting your keywords right and researching the competition and allow for ample time to improve your rankings. Not to mention the benefits to SEO from having a fast, responsive website. Everything in terms of search engine optimization is better when the website is mobile friendly.
Having a mobile friendly website leads to the benefit of the site being more cost effective. Rather than a dual-version website, you only have one website to maintain and update, which saves everyone time and money. Invest in making the single version of your website even better and more efficient and you will see the benefits in the performance of the website, which will in turn improve your business.
When you have a mobile friendly website, you are going to get more visitors. That is a given at this point. Google's algorithm prioritizes sites that are mobile friendly, so if you get a better, faster website it will lead to more web traffic. Obviously how many more visitors comes down more to SEO, but you get the gist. And not for nothing, but more visitors is better for the SEO no matter how small that increase it due to the mobile friendly boost. In general, increasing visitors shows Google and search engines that your website is worth going to and can lead to a slow and steady rise in clicks and sales.
And with more visitors comes an increase in sales and business. Online shopping is an industry that is only growing, so it makes sense that if you have a growing website that you will be seeing an increase in sales.
If you have goods and products you want to sell online, allow MSEDP to build you a website with that sort of functionality. WordPress websites offer ecommerce, which will help any website sell their products and goods. And if these user experiences are good, then it will only lead to more sales for returning customers. Same can be said for a website that offers services instead of goods. With a responsive website, you will see an increase in web traffic, which will hopefully lead to more work in your field.
When you have a responsive website, it can not only just boost your sales, but also boost your shares on social media. A mobile responsive website is easier to share with on social media, which is where a lot of sales leads come in anyway at this point. So maintaining an active social media account can definitely help grow your website and generate more leads from mobile devices. If your website was not mobile friendly, then this have avenue for traffic and customers is a dead end.
A mobile responsive website design gives you the easiest and most accessible way to support all of the latest devices, which leads to more of a market share since anyone can use your website with ease. Screen shapes and sizes are constantly changing on various devices, but a responsive website adapts to these changes so you will not need to worry about what new device is viewing your website in the future. The responsive website will be able to handle it and allow for a good experience no matter what. And in terms of scalability, a mobile responsive website can scale up or down to best fit the screens they are viewed on, which means that as the devices evolve a responsive website will always be ready to mee the new demands of the time.
At MSEDP, we have years of experience in web services and can upgrade your older website to become more mobile friendly.

And it also makes it unnecessary to maintain different versions of your website for mobile and desktop versions, which saves both time and money.
