What is Mobile Optimized Content?
Depending on your niche and industry, around half of all your traffic to your web pages will be via mobile with most of it coming from phones. This presents certain challenges from the perspective of content creators. The screen is far narrower while text sizes remain more or less the same. The format of your webpage completely changes from its appearance on a desktop PC. Mobile internet in Canada and Victoria BC is generally slower than what is available to a “regular” computer at home or work. Having your website Mobile Optimized means that your content remains easy to navigate, is pleasant to the eye, and loads easily and quickly for the tablet and smartphone audience.
