Pew Research: Increase in Smartphone and Tablet Ownership
Smartphone and tablet ownership has increased dramatically – over 35% since 2011 – according to a recent report issued by the Pew Research Center. Â At the same time, desktop and laptop ownership has decreased.
These statistics emphasize the importance of a MOBILE FRIENDLY website. Â The term often used in web development is “responsive” – meaning the site responds to the type of device that is being used and adjusts accordingly.
Mobile responsiveness also plays a key role in search engine results. Â Google recently updated their ranking system to give higher search result rankings to sites it deems mobile friendly. Â In fact, sites that are determined to be NOT mobile friendly are likely to drop out of Google search results completely!
