Will your website work across devices in 2021?

Don’t shut the door on clients. Optimise your website across devices

You need a website that works on a smartphone. You’ve heard it all before, right?

But that’s not the end of the story. Google’s indexing methods and changes in the way devices are made will give you further reasons to own a mobile-friendly website. You need to hear this.

What is a cross-device website?

Why websites must work across devices

The need to optimise for handheld devices has never been greater. It is estimated that 52% of all global internet traffic now comes from a smartphone. That means anyone with a website that cannot be seamlessly accessed from a modern smartphone has blocked more than half of the market before they even get going.

Google’s mobile-first indexing

In a nutshell, Google prioritises websites that have been optimised for modern mobile devices. They rank these optimised sites higher on SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages). Ultimately, this means mobile-optimised websites will receive all the attention, while any business with a website not optimised for smaller devices will be left out in the cold.

Moving to larger screens in 2021

Our developers at WEBPRO have noticed many websites built elsewhere that are not ready for the growth in desktop screen sizes and, in some cases, only small increases in size can cause display issues.

Subtle tech changes like these could be affecting your business, but our web designers are on hand to put things right.

How WEBPRO caters to new trends

Not only that, but we are monitoring the Google indexing news and other tech advancements to make adjustments earlier than many other web designers.

Recap: With more than half of global internet traffic now coming from a mobile and Google’s mobile-first indexing initiative, it has never been so important to have a mobile-friendly website. Not only that, our desktop screens are getting bigger. WEBPRO ensures all our clients are prepared for future changes and trends by creating websites that work across all screen sizes just as effectively.

P.S. If you are worried that your older website does not perform as well across a range of devices, give us a call and we will be more than happy to review this for you.
