Google: More Searches Now on Mobile Than On Desktops

Above: our website for ESR Property Management of New York City reaches an audience on the go. Designsite of Fairfield CT designs responsive websites that work anytime, anyplace, on any device.

A new post on Google's Blog last week reports we've been talking about for a couple of years now – more web searches are performed on phones and iPad than on desktops and laptops. This represents a real turning point for companies who don't yet have mobile-friendly websites.

Think about this if your website isn't mobile friendly: it means that your business is only open half a day – meaning you're probably losing business. As Google puts it, "Consumers, particularly on mobile devices, now have higher expectations than ever before – they want everything right, and they want everything right away. This requires that marketers answer their needs in the moment, whenever and wherever they are."

We've been way ahead of the curve on this: we've been designing responsive websites for our clients for over three years, meaning their audiences can expect a better user experience on any computer or device, further engaging them and resulting in greater sales.

Responsive websites also allow for greater search engine optimization, meaning your website will show up higher in Google and other search engines. Being the first on the block with a responsive website is not just cool anymore, but it's a necessity for businesses seeking to expand their audience and stay ahead of their competitors.

At Designsite, we work with our clients to develop beautiful responsive websites that reflect their brand, products and services. We also offer search engine optimization services and social media strategies. These services help our clients exceed their sales and marketing goals.
