Cursing at Your Cell Phone???
According to Google and their new website, How to Go Mo, 23% of you do!
Why and when does the profanity ensue? When someone hits your website and it’s not optimized for a smooth mobile experience.
While at Agent Reboot this week (thanks Chris!), I learned about a new site that will not only help you define what makes a good mobile website, but will also allow you to test yours for free. If your site is not optimized properly for a mobile device, Google may not be pushing it out on their search engine results page when someone is searching on their mobile. Why does it matter you ask? Check out this graphic from their site.
Since your site is your home on the web, these statistics should carry a lot of weight with you. Most agents are going to get a professional to help them with their website needs, but I still wanted to provide a few of the most important things to consider when optimizing your site.
- Time to Load
- Simplified Navigation
- Thumb Friendly
- Font Size and Visability
- Mobile Site Redirects (automatically sends a mobile user to the optimized site)
