The majority of online businesses should already have some kind of SEO plan in place, but what they might not be prepared for is the need for a new type of SEO - mobile SEO. With the majority of searches now taking place on a mobile device, how optimized a site is for these devices is a factor that Google takes into consideration when deciding where to rank a site.
Can mobile users navigate around your site easily? Does all the media load properly and is the text big enough to read? These are all things that you will have to think about when designing and manipulating a site.
An infographic presented by my good friends at seotribunal.com shows exactly how important having a mobile friendly website is. If your site is not optimized for mobile devices, users are likely to spend less time on it, and if it takes more than 3 seconds to load on a mobile device, then they may not stick around at all! As all marketers know, these are two outcomes that should be avoided at all costs and it can be accomplished with effective SEO strategies in play.
Optimizing for mobile SEO used to just be a competitive advantage but today it is a necessity, along with a range of other SEO tips and stats, all of which can be found in the informative infographic below.
