It takes a lot of work and dedication. Don’t let that all be thrown a way by one little change in the Google algorithm. That being said the latest change to the Google algorithm was no where near as drastic as some of its predecessors, penguin and panda, but non the less it could have an impact in your search ranking. That’s why it is so important to make sure your plumbing website is mobile friendly.

Here are two of the most important questions to ask when evaluating if your plumbing website is mobile friendly.

 

  • Is my plumbing website responsive? If your plumbing website is mobile friendly it should adapt to different mobile devices with ease. There are many different types of mobile users out there now, from smartphones to tablets and they all come in different shapes and sizes. To make your plumbing website as mobile friendly as possible talk to your web designer to make sure your plumbing website is as responsive as possible.

 

  • Is my plumbing website easy to navigate? To be truly mobile friendly your plumbing website needs to navigate with ease. Make sure the font on your plumbing website is easy to read. Keep the font simple and your color scheme easy on the eyes. Also make sure the font fits on the screen to avoid any scrolling over. For tap targets make sure they are easy to hit, accidental wrong clicks can be very frustrating for users and are not mobile friendly. For the best ease of use on your mobile plumbing website only provide the most important information. You may have a ton of information on your website but for mobile conversion you want to keep things simple.
