Does a Mobile enabled website matter to your business?






We live in the age of smart phones. If you stop to think you will realize that the age of smart phones is here to stay for a long time. Smart phones are fast becoming the primary method of surfing the web. Majority of internet related work is now done on smart phones. Travelers across the world use their smartphones to book tickets, check emails, review hotels, browse outlets and anything else required on their journey. Travelers can now create an entire itinerary from anywhere in the world.

The ever so hard working men and women in the corporate sector now use smartphones for analytics, tracking emails, spreadsheets and even official presentations are processed without a help of a home computer or laptop. With almost anything and everything available online today, millions of people now shop online using their smartphones. Mobile technology is increasing at a rapid speed.

Today, India has 243 million internet users – more than the United States and second only to China. And they are leapfrogging traditional desk-bound technology. Facebook, the world’s biggest social networking site, says that it has more than 100 million users in India, of which nearly 84 million access the site through mobile phones. This suggests the rise of the mobile internet users. 

This is one of the reasons our team of experts here at Senseware have been constantly preaching to our clients for the past few years now, the importance of having a mobile friendly website. 

Google who haven't made it a habit of sharing information about their algorithms, posted an article expressing the importance of mobile-friendly websites. 
The very first lines of the article stating that: 
“When it comes to search on mobile devices, users should get the most relevant and timely results, no matter if the information lives on mobile-friendly web pages or apps. As more people use mobile devices to access the internet, our algorithms have to adapt to these usage patterns.”
