Technology is rapidly changing and more so than ever, consumers are browsing the internet via their mobile devices. Whether it is a smart phone or tablet, desktop PCs are a thing of the past. Most smart phone users will still do research, shop and browse the internet from their mobile device even if they are home with a desktop accessible to them. While a desktop would appear more convenient given the bigger screen, nothing beats the ease of jumping from site to site or app to app than using a mobile device no matter where you are.
With Google's new updates, especially focused around their search engine optimization algorithms, it is imperative for websites to be mobile friendly. Google began implementing updates to their web-crawling algorithms and one of their updates focused on whether a site was mobile friendly or not. This update provided mobile friendly websites with better Google rankings when their site was searched from a mobile device. While not all companies have SEO services, although it is a must for all business owners, all sites were impacted when this algorithm launched.
