I’ve meant to SEO my site for mobile devices (Smartphones, tablets, etc.) since the first week but really need to make haste after Google bought Motorola Mobility this Monday. This is gargantuan news for technology, business, and distinctly SEO. Apple and their iOS now have some hardy competition. People search everywhere they are now. Look outside your window, into any store, even out your windshield and see someone with their nose buried in a Wi-Fied hand-held device. On top of that observation, look how many people you see are under the age of 30, golly, even under 18; my guess is the majority. Right now is only the base camp as society gears up to reach the summit of mobile technology. Just think about what people search for on hand-held devices:
- Business reviews
- Contact information
- Social networks
Mobile SEO has always been rough to set up but it’s so worth it and totally achievable with some elbow grease. A lot of frustrations come from different codings between desktops and laptops versus hand-helds but there are worthwhile avenues to smooth them out. Searching also involves sharing and people unable to see my Web site would share just that to others with mobile devices.
Thanks for reading,
PS Double thanks to those somehow reading on a mobile device. I’ve checked my stats and have noticed a few of you out there. I hope I can have a few more once my site is mobile-savvy in the next few days.
