Why Mobile Responsive Websites Are A Must

Mobile first-indexing is now fully underway and there’s no excuse for having a website that is not optimized for use across all platforms in 2021.  Most people aren’t looking at your website on a desktop or laptop anymore. They are looking at it on a phone or tablet.

Recent studies show 52% of smartphone users gather health-related information on their phones, ranging from information around a specific medical procedure to diet and nutrition best practices. 

Having a mobile-responsive site (ie one that automatically changes its layout and placements of certain menus and buttons automatically) is important because firstly, over half of patients search online for health information on their smartphone, and secondly, Google now gives ranking priority to those sites that are mobile friendly.  In fact, Google has stated that it will penalize websites that aren’t mobile-responsive, so if your site isn’t optimized for mobile devices, you’ll likely lose out significantly in the organic search rankings.
