Narrative – Business Websites 101

In 2019, well over half of all page views for your website are likely to happen from a mobile device. What website factors contribute to a website working well on a mobile device?Google and AnswerLab did a research study to answer this question. Here is their conclusion.

Mobile users are very goal-oriented. They expect to be able to get what they need, immediately, and on their own terms.

Here is what Google has to say on the subject. First, it has to scale; the website needs to be legible and well laid out on a variety of screen sizes. Also, the website has to load fast. In 2019, potential customers have very little patience with slow loading websites. Therefore, they will move on to the next potential business that might fulfill the need they are looking to meet.

This means the majority of websites have a lot of wasted effort on aesthetics. Your website should be well laid out, have good graphics, and convey important information to potential customers. But forget the fancy “sliders”, auto play videos, etc… Your potential customers will not wait around for them to load.

Also bear in mind, we are in Pocahontas County, WV. We have limited bandwidth in the best scenarios. Your website needs to load fast and your information must be complete and accurate in both search results and maps.
