Having to stay in particular location before accessing the Internet is fast becoming obsolete as people now prefer to do all their various online searches from anywhere and anytime and this has been made possible through mobile phones. The mobile phone has undergone various evolutions since its invention and overtime, smartphones capable of providing users with access to the Internet have being produced. This new development has displaced the desktop computer as you can now perform various operations that was formally only possible through desktop computer on your portable mobile phone. In the year 2016, the number of smartphones has been recorded to exceed the number of desktop computer. So what is the point I want to make out of all this-website that have not being made mobile-friendly will surely lose their stand in search engine ranking.
Making your website mobile friendly means making your website work for mobile phone visitors to your website as much as it will work for those accessing your website using a desktop view. With the present use of smartphones for Internet access, people now prefer it over desktop so if you want to keep traffic coming to your website then you have to make your website an easy access to people through their phone and this can only be achieved by making your device mobile-friendly.
This brings me to the purpose of this article- how to make your website mobile friendly.
Make your website responsive
What does it means to have a responsive website? Having a responsive website means that the mobile view of your website has the same content as the desktop view though the content arrangement will be different. This is very key in making your website mobile-friendly. If you are a beginner, you could apply for the service of an international SEO consultant or an SEO company Sri Lanka that offers SEO services that can be used to make your website responsive.
Using a viewpoint Meta tag
Having a mobile view of your website is not enough to have your webpage a high ranker in search engines, if your website cannot fit the screen size of mobile device used by your website visitors then you might be giving them a reason to defect your website for another. For instance, imagine visiting a website and it doesn’t seem to fit properly on your mobile screen, having to swipe the screen left and right to have the full view of the website could be quite annoying, you later end up abandoning the website for another. Making your website fit the mobile screen size of your visitors is not fat fetched all you need to do is to activate the use of a viewpoint Meta tag for your website and it will do the job for you.
Have you ever had to deal with a small button size on website with your fingers, how annoying that could be! Having to click on a small button with a computer mouse won’t be a problem but having to tap on it with your finger will be hard, it will even be tougher when you are dealing with multiple button arranged together in a row. This will most likely turn away visitors from your website (of course it reduces traffic to your website and a drop in ranking on search engine). On a mobile view, make the button as large as possible for easy tapping by users.
