“Smartphone ownership in U.S. has topped 55% of all American adults…60% of cell phone owners”
~ Pew Research
“95% of smartphone users look for local information. 88% take action within a day.”
~ Google: The Mobile Movement
Obviously, smartphones are not a fad…and there are only going to be more of them used to find local products and services. With only about 4% of websites being mobile friendly, you still have first-mover advantage in getting great mobile search results positioning.
Here’s How The Biggest Search Engine Company Feels About Smartphones…
Smartphone users have become a significant and fast-growing segment of Internet users, and Google wants them to experience the full richness of the web.
“If your site is not mobile-friendly, it may not rank as highly on mobile.”
~ Matt Cutts (Google)
You may not be aware that Google serves different search results to mobile phone users than for desktop/laptop users. Consider that as Google continues to refine its mobile search algorithm, if your website is not mobile-friendly, it’s not going to show up when smartphone users search for your products and services. Obviously, that will adversely affect your sales.
