Is your website “mobile-friendly”?

There was a day that shoppers used a desktop computer to shop for products or services. Those days are gone. The smartphone has become the favored device for shopping. If your website is not optimized for viewing (and using) on a smartphone, you’re going to lose.

How do you find out if your website is mobile-friendly? There is only one way to do it. Ask Google.

There are a couple of ways to make your website mobile-friendly. You can have a website designer create a separate mobile version of your existing website. If your website is built on WordPress, you can convert your website’s theme to a “responsive” theme. A responsive theme adjusts your website to format to the size of the screen on the shopper’s device – whether it is a smartphone, tablet or laptop. That way, your website will always look good, be readable and function well.

In March 2019, Google advised that a responsive website is recommended over having a separate mobile version.
