If your site isn’t mobile friendly yet, you either haven’t been paying attention, or you have been so busy that you haven’t had a chance to address it. Google started rolling out mobile first indexing in 2018, and now your rankings are based on the mobile version of your site. Even if you aren’t worried about SEO, more than half of internet traffic is now coming from a mobile device. If your website isn’t mobile friendly now, you aren’t just missing out on SEO opportunities, you are generally giving all of your potential prospects and clients a bad user experience.
Site Redesigns Seem Expensive and Difficult
I get it, it is one of those scary costs you kept putting off. Becoming mobile friendly meant redesigning your whole site. You have to either track down your web developer or find a new one and go through that whole difficult process and you just don’t have time. Now it is hurting your sales and your new business. If you’ve waited this long, it probably wasn’t a good idea, but it may pay off a little bit now. There are now WordPress plugins that can help turn your current site into a mobile friendly site if it wasn’t before. So if your site is WordPress but you haven’t gotten around to that redesign, it became a whole lot easier. Search Engine Journal recently put out a great article with new WordPress plugins that convert your site to mobile friendly.
