5 hacks to dominate mobile search for your business

Today’s mobile search for your business on Google alone accounts for 58% of all searches meaning that it is now imperative as a website/business owner that your website is ready for mobile traffic.

Speed

site speed plays a big part in the success of your mobile platform and it’s important to ensure that your site and its images are displayed quickly. Site speed is one of the most important aspects of SEO and also for mobile search. Depending on the platform that your website is built on there are a number of plugins available that will help with site loading speed.

Responsive Website Design

Having a mobile-friendly website will really help your website visitors and making it user friendly and easy to use and navigate will make it easier for customers to spend. From a search perspective, UX is also a ranking factor, meaning that there is more than one benefit of having a responsive mobile website.

Header Images

Large header images don’t do mobile search for your business sites any favors both from a user’s point of view and also from a search perspective. Always try to keep the header image as small and compressed as possible.

Pop-Ups

Pop-ups are often an issue on desktops but even more so on a mobile device. Where the screen space is very limited. Unless absolutely necessary, there should not be any form of pop up on a mobile device. Try and think of yourself as the user and empathize with your site visitors.

User Experience (UX)

Design and layout are really important for mobile sites. We’ve all tried to use a website that isn’t responsive. And so often we just end up navigating away from the page. As it becomes more trouble than its worth. Some open-source systems such as WordPress now come with a responsive design built-in. Meaning then you don’t have to worry that your site won’t be responsive.
