Maine Web Designer Morris Murphy says over 80% of all local searches are now being made on mobile phones and devices…even by people who are at home. This makes it essential for businesses to have a mobile friendly website.

Murphy says changes made by Google to their search engine algorithm in the past few weeks means businesses with a mobile friendly site are now being rewarded and businesses without mobile friendly sites are being severely punished in the search engine results.
93% of Americans now have a mobile within reach 24 hours a day seven days a week. 94% of Smartphone users look for local information on their phone and 90% take action like making a purchase or calling a business as a result of that use.
A site that is not mobile optimised is not only less likely to rank high in Google search engine results. Visitors on mobiles find those sites extremely difficult to read and navigate because they don’t display properly on mobile devices. That’s just one of the reasons Google is favoring mobile friendly websites in its latest search engine algorithm changes.
Murphy says when his firm designs a mobile friendly site they include a “click to call” button. With just one click the business phone number is activated with the question “would you like to call now?” This makes it very easy for potential customers to call the business to place an order or make an enquiry and can dramatically increase internet sales.
For businesses that prefer to be contacted by email Murphy says a “click to email” button can be added instead or as well as a “click to call” button.
Murphy highly recommends using a web design firm that creates stand alone mobile friendly sites for a business. A stand alone mobile website sits on its own subdomain loads fast and is 100% optimized for mobile traffic. These are the types of sites that Google favours.
Murphy’s firm Mobile Is No Bull specialises in mobile friendly sites and online video for business websites in Maine and in the United States.
