When you hear the term mobile friendly law firm Website, you might not be sure what it means today and what it should mean to your law firm.
Did you know that your Website might receive over 40% of its visitors on a mobile device?
Mobile friendly is also a major factor in search engine optimization. Is your website ready for mobile prime time? Have you taken the necessary steps to build a responsive mobile friendly website?
In the early days of the web and smartphones, it was common to build out a second mobile version of a Website. The way it worked was via a browser detect designed to serve up the different Mobile version of the Website. Now many websites are built on platforms or content Management systems (like WordPress) that are open source. It’s easy to have a Website that looks good in the desktop browser but also conforms or responds to a mobile device or tablet.
Google Sees the future of search moving in the direction of mobility and mobile devices. Google will rank a site not only on its relevance but also check to see if the site is mobile friendly and is it usable and user-friendly?
So when we say a search engine friendly website we also mean mobile friendly website nowadays. This is important and it means that the images and graphics render in a way that you want them to on a device, but also in a way that the search engine can confirm that you have set up the site correctly.
If you went in to look at some of the reporting from Google analytics you would see that upwards 40 to 50% of your visitors are visiting on a mobile device that’s pretty significant. Many times almost half or a little less than half of the people come to the Website (on mobile devices) and you want to make sure they have a good experience. You want to present them with the most up-to-date version of your site that’s not all text and looks professional. Many attorneys aren’t sure what makes a great mobile-friendly Law Firm Website. First and foremost, it should respond well to each device, whether it’s an iPhone, droid, or tablet. This means the width and imagery should conform and adjust so that you have the version of the site you were looking for on each device.
There should also be contact information and telephone with hyperlinks so that it’s very easy for someone to “click to call” you.
