Google now has more mobile searches than desktop searches

Google has announced this week that, for the first time, users are using the search giant on their mobile devices more than on desktop and laptop computers.

As a small business owner, you need to think about that statement and ask yourself if you’re doing enough to make it easy on potential customers that are trying to get information about you on their cell or their tablet. There’s a reason that Google has made a very public display about how important mobile search is going to be going forward and if you aren’t putting your best foot forward getting a site that works on those devices, then you are going to be passed up by any of your competition that is doing something about it.

As a marketer and designer, I sometimes wonder why people let this opportunity slide. Frankly, for smaller businesses and businesses looking to make their marketing dollars go farther, it’s not all that hard to come up with a pretty good product with only moderate effort. In many cases, it’s as easy as using a responsive theme in your website to put you miles ahead of your competition. With a bit more effort, you can make phoning your business trivial when they visit your site with dialable links put front and center.
