More than ever, having your website be mobile-friendly is vital for your SEO and online marketing strategy. In fact, Google is now focusing on this aspect when ranking sites on a search results page. Is your practice ready for mobile-first? Do you need to update or redesign your dental website?
Google will now be implementing mobile-first indexing, which means priority will be placed on websites that have are responsive to devices such as smartphones and tablets. Studies show that people now use smartphones more than either desktop or laptops to search online. In addition, they will turn away from a non-mobile site in a matter of seconds. Which means Google now believes that improving user experience means mobile-friendliness. If you’re not placing the same priority on maintaining a good user experience, then your SEO could suffer and as a result, fewer people could end up discovering you through an online search.
Is Your Site Mobile?
Do you have a responsive site? If you’re not sure, do a quick check. Go to your website on your smartphone. Does the site look different from the desktop version? The responsive option should have hidden navigation and be easy to scroll and look through without resizing. If this isn’t the case, then you need to update asap. Otherwise, you could be turning away potential patients and also losing a higher spot on a search results page.
