The mobile web is growing more and more every day. Whether you are selling cars, homes or pecan pies it is essential to have a mobile friendly website that is both functional and easy to use.
Retailers who specialize in home building and car sales can especially benefit from a mobile website as many consumers tend to research and consult on the go while they shop for these particular items and services. Some of the best home builder websites out there incorporate mobile as part of your interactive home builder marketing strategy. Experts in search are also praising the benefits of mobile for auto retailers quoting that “approximately one-third of all search traffic for auto industry related terms comes from mobile devices”.
Here are a few hard hitting reasons to consider a mobile site along with a custom infographic I put together to help illustrate the impact and power of mobile:
- Google indexes mobile websites separately. This doubles your opportunity to index more pages and increase your organic search capabilities, so why not do it!
- The world is on the go and people are going mobile! According to an article by searchengineland.com 93% of U.S. adults own a cell phone.
- According to internetretailer.com back in 2009, 5% of the top 500 e-retailers had mobile website. Inevitably, this number has vastly increased within the past 3 years.
Despite the strong presence of mobile today and the overwhelming statistics which back up the need for mobile there are still many companies out there who have yet to go mobile.
