What Is Mobile Optimization?
A mobile optimized website simply means that the website can display properly on a mobile device or smartphone. The fast and easy solution in most cases is to create a website that is mobile responsive. Meaning it will automatically adjust to fit any device screen size. The disadvantage to a mobile responsive website is that often there are trade-offs for placement and hierarchy for a page or post on your website that was designed to be viewed on a desktop computer.
The alternative and often more costly way of offering a great mobile device user experience on your website is to create mobile page designs or have a mobile app. Some mobile apps are free and some can cost thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Why Is Responsive or Mobile Websites Are So Relevant To Marketers?
Why Is It Important In 2016 and years coming for your website “user experience” and your “mobile ease of use.” Lower bounce rates, better user experience, more TOS…
What is a bounce rate? It means how quickly a user leaves your website after clicking on the link:
- Is it immediate?
- Do they stay for 12 seconds and leave?
- Do they read or watch a video and click onto the next mobile page in the customer journey
What is TOS? It means Time on Screen and is referring to how long does a user stay on any one page of your website. If the user is searching on mobile and they continue on to your site but leave immediately for the sake of having a bad user experience that effects the TOS and increases your bounce rate, which indicates to Google that your website is not providing the solutions for the user. At that time your website will move down in the rankings. Test your website with this tool.
