Mobile Friendly Web Design
Mobile Friendly Web Design goes hand-in-hand with responsive websites.
The Internet took off quicker than anyone would have predicted, growing like crazy. Now, for the past few years, mobile growth has exploded onto the scene. The growth of mobile Internet usage is also far out pacing that of general Internet usage growth.
With the growth in mobile Internet usage comes the question of how to build websites suitable for all users. The industry response to this question has become responsive web design, also known as RWD. More people now use devices such as the iPhone, Android phones and handheld tablets to browse the web. Mobile and alternative devices are outselling desktop units by four to one. Projections suggest that during the next three years, these devices will generate more Internet traffic than desktops or laptops will.
Google estimates that about 60% of it’s searches currently comes from mobile devices. On April 21, 2015, Google introduced a Mobile Algorithm that favors mobile-friendly websites positioning on it’s mobile searches. With that, responsiveness of the websites became an industry standard.
