What is mobile-ready website design?
Mobile-ready websites are fluid. Just think of the images and text in your website like a liquid—moving, stacking and resizing to fill the confined screen space of a phone, tablet or desktop. The advantage? One site works seamlessly on all devices, at all sizes.

Top 5 reasons to upgrade to a mobile-ready website

HIGHER GOOGLE RANKINGS   If your website doesn’t work on mobile, your Google search engine ranking will be lower on mobile devices (and Google had nearly 85% market share on mobile devices in May 2020).

INCREASED MOBILE TRAFFIC   As of Q1 2020, 52% of global web traffic originated from mobile devices, up from 31% in 2015.

PREFERRED BROWSING EXPERIENCE   Your website visitor deserves a consistent experience, without squinting or screen-pinching to enlarge tiny type.

IMPROVED SEO   A mobile-optimized site provides improved search engine optimization (SEO).

FASTER WEB PAGES  In a world of ever-shorter attention spans, no one wants to wait for pages to load.
