Creating a mobile version of your website has multiple advantages when it comes to user friendliness. For example, your content will be adapted to the screen size of the user's device, be it a smartphone, tablet or laptop. Text, pictures and navigation are all automatically adjusted to the right size. Another reason to optimize websites for mobile devices is that it decreases loading times.

A mobile version improves Google rankings
Another reason for creating a mobile website is to get a better search engine ranking, from Google for example. Search engines recognize the rapidly growing trend for mobile internet access. Since the latest Google update, websites that do not have a mobile optimized version are ranked lower than those that have. This in turns affects their visibility and reach, as they are visited less frequently. In order to maintain a high ranking or to increase it, it is very important to make sure that your website is mobile friendly.
