You put a lot of thought and care into your office, making sure the room is esthetically-pleasing and offers a relaxing and inviting atmosphere. Likewise, your website acts as your online office, which is why we also put a lot of thought in to the design and function of your dental website. With that in mind, should your design go mobile?
Convenience and SEO Benefits
The most important reason to go mobile is for users. The people who visit your site are more likely to do so on a smartphone or tablet. In fact, more people use those devices to surf the web than desktops or laptops. Have you ever checked out a site on your phone, only for the next to appear tiny and unreadable? The navigation impossible unless you resize the screen with your fingers? The page basically a shrunken version of the desktop, unwieldy and irritating? Well congratulations, you know now the joy of a non-mobile friendly website. I bet you didn’t stick around did you? Other people are going to be no different, and they’ll definitely be less likely to make an appointment if they can’t even get a good look at your website.
As for SEO, remember that Google is now big on mobile-first indexing. Sites easy to view on phones will get higher rankings than sites that can’t be. If you want to be competitive in your community, you can’t risk losing a high ranking or having people leave your website after a few seconds frustrated.
