You got it! For those who have been diligent in their website maintenance and upgrades, your hard work will pay off again. Of course, you know what I'm talking about - Mobile Optimization!

Time after time of talking to clients and getting their websites mobile optimized, they will now see the benefit not only in user experience, but also soon a boost in rankings.

What is mobile optimization?

Before we get to good stuff, let's take a step back and talk about what mobile optimization is. The basic idea behind mobile optimization is a website that can be seen and used well on mobile devices such as an iPhone. There are three different ways that your site can be mobile optimized.

  1. Responsive design - The web page changes based on the viewer's device. They will receive a webpage sized based on their device's screen. This can change instantly and does not require additional pages or code to be added. This works very well for tablets as well.
  2. Mobile Served Content - The web server detects what sort of device the user has and then serves up a special "mobile template" of the site. The content is the same as the desktop version of the site, but a special template is called when mobile devices are detected. This does not work well when tablets are detected.
  3. Mobile website - This is a completely separate website from the desktop. You must duplicate all of your content and send it both to the desktop and the m.example.com versions of your website. This can be very difficult as you must ensure to place tags on the site to stop the search engines from detecting duplicate content. The web server would detect what device is viewing it and direct the browser to the correct version of the site.

How can I tell if my website is mobile optimized?

One of the search engines - Google - has released a tool to help see how well your site mobile optimized. You might already be all set and ready, but a quick test to see if you are implementing any mobile technology would be to visit your website on your phone. Does it look good? Is it easy to navigate and read or interact with the content? If not, work must be done.

Benefits of Mobile Optimization

Now for the good stuff! The first and possibly the biggest benefit of having a mobile optimized website is for the user experience. Users are visiting sites more and more on mobile and tablet devices. If it is more difficult to see and interact with content, they will lose interest and leave the site in favor of another - more well designed - site. Even if it is not on the first page of the search engines.

The other reason would be the upcoming rankings boost. For all of your good work in making sure that your visitors are getting the best experience possible, the search engines are rewarding you with a rankings boost. Since more and more searches are happening on mobile devices, it's only natural that the engines would want to send their searchers to more well designed and mobile friendly sites. It benefits you - it benefits them. Win-win!

Here is an example of a boosted ranking with "mobile friendly" added to the search result.

Digital Communication Today Where have you heard these before? "This is a very complicated world, it’s a very noisy world." "We live in an increasingly noisy world." The first quote was said by none other than Apple founder Steve Jobs in 1997. The second quote comes from Lonnie Mayne , President at customer experience (CX) optimization platform InMoment and founder of Red Shoes Living. I bring these two quotes up because I've been thinking a lot about what's missing in digital communication today.

What is SEO web design or search engine optimized web design? SEO Web Design is the deployment of SEO research strategy to both influence the design and development of the website. In other words, while a website is in the design phase, the SEO team is researching key phrases, content, structure, and user flow. Using the findings from the SEO research influences the design decisions of the website. SEO has to work with the technology of the website, and this means that the actual use of the website such as purchases, appointment scheduling, contact forms, user forum, etc. have to work together with the SEO findings in order to make the user experience easy and intuitive.
