Here are a few steps you can take right now to make sure your website is performing as well for your mobile visitors as it is for your desktop users.
1-Make your website responsive.
A responsive website has the same content and information on whatever device you access it on, but it changes the way it is displayed and organized based on the device’s screen size. This is the best option for making your website mobile friendly because you are not limiting the information your mobile visitors can access – they are always getting the same content as other visitors. And the responsive design is also good for SEO. Google said it was their preferred format for mobile websites.
2-Make the information easier to find.
Some people who browse the web on their mobile devices don’t hesitate to take the time to browse or read content at the same pace as on a computer, but others want to find the information they need just as quickly and as quickly. easily as possible. Think about the information mobile device users are most likely to look for when they visit your website, and put it in a prominent and easy-to-find place on the mobile home page.
Also consider the FAQs that people look for the most when they visit your website. It might not make sense to put all the answers front and center on your mobile homepage, but you need to make them easy to find and navigate on a mobile device.
3-Don’t use Flash.
Using Flash on your website is SEO error. This can slow down the load time of a page and there are many browsers and devices where it just doesn’t work.
Neither Android nor iOS devices support flash, so if you build a website that in any way relies on experiencing Flash animation, your mobile users will be excluded. At this point, it’s best to remove the technology from your website altogether and find a solid web design that works without it.
4-Include the Meta Viewport tag.
The Viewport META tag is an easy way to control how your website looks on mobile. If your page opens the same width on your phone’s small screen as it does on your desktop, you’ll have to do a little awkward side-to-side scrolling to read each line of text and see the different sides of it. The META tag tells web browsers to adapt the width of your page to the screen of the type of device.
Adding it to your html is pretty straightforward. Just paste it over the HTML of each page:
<meta name =” DMTwebhosting” content =” width = device-width, initial-scale = 1 ″>
5-Enable automatic correction for forms.
It’s easy not to think of the little ways that AutoCorrect can make a user’s interaction with your website more annoying. If you have forms on your website that ask for name or address information, a little way to make it easier for your mobile visitors to provide that information is to turn off autocorrect for each form field or their phone will try. to change their name or street name to more common words and slow down the process of filling out your form.
In the input field, make sure to include autocorrect = off in the html.
6-Make your buttons big enough to work on mobile.
It’s easy enough to click a button of any size with a mouse, but when trying to “click” your fingers on a small smartphone screen, the small buttons are difficult to manage. Using small sized button may annoy client user if they are trying to push one button and another is being pressed at the same time.
Every time you add a button to your site, take the time to test them yourself on as many mobile devices as you can find among your employees and family. Make sure that selecting each button is reasonably easy on all devices and, if not, update it to be.
7-Use large font sizes.
Reading on a small screen is even more difficult if the font is small. It’s best to use a font size of at least 14 pixels on your webpages, but go ahead and test what that looks like to see if the magnification could be better here.
It’s also best to stick with standard fonts. Any font that your visitor’s browser might need to download will slow your website load time, which is bad news on mobile.
8-Compress your images and CSS.
Speaking of site load times, you still want your site speed to be fast. Website can be made more user friendly y compressing the high resolution images that certainly slow done the website speed.
If you do this and compress your website images, its will result in fast browsing which will definitely remove any negative affect.
9-Make it easy to switch to Desktop view.
Some of your mobile visitors may prefer to see the desktop version of your website instead (especially if you choose a mobile version of your website rather than a responsive site).
Figure our client’s preference and make it possible for them to do it. You want your visitors to be able to interact with your website in the way that’s best for them.
10-Perform regular mobile tests.
The best thing you can do to make sure that your website’s mobile experience is good is to test it yourself on your mobile device on a regular basis. Every once in a while, view your website on your phone and tablet, and spend some time browsing to see if anything is difficult to see or do. Have your employees do the same, and consider hiring users to perform testing as well (because they’ll see it all with fresh eyes).
Make your website mobile-friendly
Even if everything is fine today, how mobile devices look and function will continually change and today’s mobile-friendly website might not do the job tomorrow. Keep testing, tweaking as needed, and keep putting your mobile users as a priority and you should be fine.
