Quick question: Does your website respond to smartphones or tablets? If yes, congratulations! If not, then you may have some work to do, but it is well worth it. In the last few years the way we surf the web has changed drastically and with that, what we expect from a website has changed as well. In order to maintain good SEO and optimal rankings, you need to be mobile-friendly.
Frequently Asked Questions About Mobile-Friendliness
Question: Do I need to replace my unresponsive website?
Answer: If your website was built in the last year or so, then you may be able to redesign it. However. If it’s older than three years then we strongly recommend a complete rebuild. Multiple aspects of your site could be out of date and this is a great chance to change that.
Question: How does mobile impact modern website design?
Answer: Since most people now use smartphones to look for businesses or services, attracting new clients means having a site that works well on these devices. As more people have become accustomed to seeing mobile sites, even on desktops they prefer hidden or simple navigation, fewer pages, and a flat design. All this points to one fact: Mobile isn’t going anywhere.
Question: Will this impact SEO?
Answer: Yes! Google recently unveiled mobile-first indexing. Basically, the search giant will now place priority on businesses and practices that have mobile-friendly websites. If you don’t have a responsive website, then your rankings could slip, making it harder for people to discover you when searching for dental care in your community.
