Frequently Asked Questions About Mobile-Friendliness
Question: How does a lack of mobile-friendliness hurt my site?
Answer: Well, it sure doesn’t help! Starting last May, Google began placing greater emphasis on websites that are mobile friendly. Which makes sense, since most users now surf the web using a smartphone or tablet. Therefore, according to Google, websites that are not responsive equal a bad user experience. If you’re mobile ready, great! If not, even with good content your rankings could slip.
Question: Do I need a redesign, or a completely new site?
Answer: That depends. We typically recommend a redesign every two to three years. After all, what users find appealing online changes at such a fast rate. Even websites designed just a few years ago, such as 2010 or 2011, could appear very dated to some users. If you have a relatively new site, then a redesign may be enough. If you have an already outdated design, we may suggest starting over.
