Mobile Optimised Websites

Having a mobile optimised website is a key factor for your online success, as some sites see traffic volumes in excess of 80% for mobiles. 

We design and optimise all our websites with mobile devices in mind. Most website will see around half of the people who visit the site are using mobile devices, but some sites may see traffic volumes in excess of 80% for mobile devices. It is vital that the website is well designed to make use of the mobile screen format.

Mobile vs PC Screen

As you can see, mobile devices typically display a web page in portrait format. This means that the screen is much taller and less wide. A mobile device generally has a smaller screen, so one technique used to overcome this is to display images and sections of a page “stacked” one on top of another. One a PC or Laptop screen images and sections can often be displayed side by side to make viewing easier.

One a mobile device, any images that are displayed will normally fit the width of the screen, and sometimes the image can be to small to view properly, and have a lot of images can make viewing the page difficult from mobiles.

Page loading times

What is page loading time and why is it important?

Page loading time is the time it takes for a page on your website to load to the device, whether that be a Mobile device or a PC/Laptop device. Having a page that loads slowly can adversely affect your standing in the search results for search engines like Google.

There are many things that can affect the page loading time, but in general the quicker your page loads the better. One of the most dramatic influences in page loading time is the images you have on each page.

If you have a lot of images, and the image files are large images your page could take a 10’s of seconds to load. For mobile users in particular this equates to a bad user experience and they could leave your site before going further. 

Page loading time is one of the factors search engines such as Google use to help rank the search results. If your site has slow page loading times, it is likely you may not appear on the first page of the results, and no-one may visit your website.

Optimised for Mobile

Why is optimising for Mobile devices important?

We know that page loading times can influence search engine rankings, so having a web page that is optimised for mobile devices is key to helping achieve the highest ranking possible.

Although having images can help enhance the look of a web page when it is viewed on a PC or laptop, having too many images on a mobile screen can actually detract from the view and decrease the user experience.

We optimise all of the pages we design and ensure that images that detract from the experience are not displayed on mobile devices. This also helps decrease mobile page loading times.
