Mobile-Friendly Website Design for Law Firms and Solicitors
Why is Mobile-Friendly Web Design Important for My Law Firm? Test
It is extremely important that you make it as easy as possible for people to pull out their smartphone and find you online when searching for a law firm. The percentage of people using a mobile phone to search on Google has been rising every year since smartphones were invented.
1) Conversion – A mobile-friendly site make it easier for people to browse your website and see your services. As a result they are more likely to contact you.
2) Ranking – A mobile-friendly website will increase your ranking. Websites that are not mobile-friendly are penalised by Google’s mobile-friendly algorithm, meaning that your website will appear lower in the Google rankings for smartphone searches if your site is not mobile-friendly.
Many law firm websites still don’t have mobile-friendly sites and as a result their business is suffering. Google’s creation of this new algorithm combined with the increase of mobile users and the need for them to be able to navigate your website, leads us to believe this will be one of the most important aspects of internet marketing in 2016.
What does Mobile Friendly Web Design Look Like?
Below is an example of a law firm’s website that is optimised for devices. As you can see, the width and the elements on the page change in size depending on the device you are viewing the website from. This ensures that visitors to your website can always see the key information about your services and navigate your site with ease.
Below is an example of a law firm that does not have a website optimised for devices. When viewing the website on a smartphone the elements do not change in size, making the information very difficult to read.
If you are unsure whether or not your website is mobile-friendly, visit Google Webmaster Tools. Here you can type in your website address and Google will tell you whether or not your website is compatible with mobile phones.
