Optimizing Website for Mobile Devices

More and more users are using mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets to visit websites. Google has also recognized this trend and prefers mobile-optimized websites in the search results.

What Distinguishes a Mobile-Optimized Website?

Mobile devices are available in different versions. Most have small screens and rely on touch input rather than keyboard and mouse.

This raises a number of challenges that should be considered when designing a website:

  • Mobile-optimized sites should take full advantage of the device's limited space and use legible font sizes.
  • Since mobile websites are often operated by touch, links and buttons must be large enough and have sufficient space.
  • If possible, mobile websites should avoid large graphics and videos so that the website can load quickly on slower mobile connections.
