Why Cellphone Compatible Websites?

GLOBAL TRENDS – Business owners often wonder why their websites should be cellphone or mobile compatible. The answer is simply because modern communication and marketing is going mobile. Cellphones are becoming an extension of people lives as they take their cellphones wherever they go.

Important Message from Google
Is your site mobile-friendly?

Starting 21 April 2015, Google Search will be expanding its use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. Double-check your websites to ensure that they are ready for this change by testing pages of your site with the Mobile-Friendly Test tool.

This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in Google Search results. Users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results optimised for their devices.

By being mobile-friendly, you’ll benefit too by growing your audience and revenue across all screens.

Although modern cellphones or smart-phones are powerful devices with operating systems similar to computers, their processing power and memory capacity is expected to lag behind notebooks, in the same way that the processing power of notebooks lag behind desktop computers. Except for tablets, cellphone screens are also much smaller; therefore websites should adapt according to the screen size and processing power of various devices. Websites that can adapt to various devices and screen sizes, is called responsive websites.

If you consider that there are roughly three times more cellphone users that are accessing the internet daily than there are people accessing the internet from their computers, it is just plain logic that your business is losing a major opportunity to attract new customers if you do not cater for the cellphone or mobile internet market by having a mobile friendly website.
