Integrating mobile is an important aspect of custom website design services. There are now three types of websites that a business can have regarding mobile capabilities. We’ll describe each and then pick our winner in this blog.
Mobile-first websites are designed for mobile users in mind. When businesses choose this option, they assume that their target audience spends more time on their smartphones and tablets as opposed to desktops and laptops.
And guess what? This is a pretty good bet. Users now place more searches on mobile devices and according to Search Engine Watch, those searches are more likely to convert.
Mobile-friendly websites play both sides of the coin. Users can access them both on their smartphones and desktops. Responsive design is a popular choice for businesses that want to cater to both kinds of users.
To check if your website is mobile-friendly, run your URL through Google’s test. If it is, then your site will get the "mobile-friendly" label when it pops up in Google’s mobile search results.
And then there are the websites that just refuse to acknowledge smartphones and tablets. Not mobile is a thing of the past, and we don’t recommend it under any circumstance.
Although mobile is getting more and more important, you should still keep desktops in mind when designing your site. This is the best option in terms of catering to all consumers.
We don’t know when this shift will happen, but we know that it’s coming. In the end, the best sites will be the ones that prioritize mobile and have the best user experience.
With customer website design services, you get to choose which kind of website you want. If you’re not sure which option is best, then we’ll steer you in the right direction.
