Charleston, SC -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/06/2014 -- Just a few years ago, the balance of visitors most business-to-business and industrial websites were receiving from mobile devices (phones and tablets) versus PC’s and laptops, was only about 10% mobile traffic. Of course, this was much higher for consumer/retail oriented sites.

Now, projected by the end of the year, mobile device users will account for more than 50% of your website traffic via Smartphones and Tablets. As such, your site will need to present well on all devices, auto adjust to any screen size and have a navigation structure that can be used by PC’s to iPhones.

And, until recently, Google was not tracking the functionality of websites and if they were easily viewable by mobile devices and that has now changed. Google is testing all websites to see if the site is mobile device compatible.

Quote from Google –

‘We have taken a strong stance on mobile SEO, and there will be demotions if a website is not mobile friendly or is misconfigured when it comes to being mobile friendly.

The demotion will only impact mobile, smartphone friendly, search results and only impact web pages that are not smartphone friendly or misconfigured when it comes to being smartphone friendly’

Fortunately, there are several alternatives to refresh your current site with new design alternatives that are mobile device friendly and are typically economical to apply. Typically, we are able to migrate the current graphic design, images, content and page navigation of your current site to a ‘Responsive’ theme platform.

The cost for the upgrade is usually nominal and we also check for any other mobile device functionality issues as well. Your website will be mobile friendly, viewable on all Android and iOS (Apple) devices, and more importantly, begin seeing an increase in mobile user traffic from the search engines, Google, Yahoo and Bing.

We would appreciate the opportunity to discuss the alternatives in upgrading your website, the process and the budget considerations involved. Please request a response at www.wsdresource.com/proposalrequest.php
