2019 Is the Year of the Mobile First Website April 12, 2019 By alex Don’t Lose Your Optimization! The search engines newest changes include mobile first websites. This is a natural progression of the responsive mobile friendly websites that started a few years back. If you never updated your website or if your website is currently mobile friendly, how important is it that you have a mobile first site? In October 2016, mobile traffic officially surpassed desktop traffic on the internet. If your site is not optimized for mobile, whether it doesn’t look right or if it’s not easy to navigate, you will lose customers that expect a better mobile experience.

To make an informed decision, review your analytics, benchmark your competition, and ask pertinent online experience questions to a focus group.
