Mobile-friendly websites are a must for 2011

Apr 01

According to the latest release from comScore, 69.5 million people in the US have a smartphone. Android is the most popular platform with 33% of the market share in the month of February, and 38.4 percent used a browser from their phone. With 234 million Americans age 13 and older using mobile devices, that’s close to 89 million people who accessed a browser. Believe it or not, there are still a very large amount of websites that are only clearly accessible via the web, ie. when you go to the website on a mobile device such as the blackberry or iPhone, the navigation is off, images are shifted, you can’t make a purchase, and the list goes on and on.

Is your website mobile-friendly? Can you access it using the Android, iPhone, or Blackberry? If someone visits your website via their mobile device, is it easy to navigate and read from the mobile device? If your website is all flash, do you have a mobile-friendly version for those on the iPhone or iPod Touch, and other devices that cannot view flash?

If you answered no to any of the questions above, the time to fix this is now.
