The Ropes of Proper Mobile Web Design

If you think that mobile web design is not of the upmost importance when developing a website, I should tell you that you are in for a rude awakening from a long journey of denial. Today, there are more people surfing the web from a mobile device in their hands and away from a hard line than ever. On the other hand if you agree with the fact that it is actually peaking and perhaps even displacing common website design then here we have some starting points to make sure you are on the right track:

 

Screen Size

Screens on mobile devices are not the generally accepted 15’’ or more that home computers have and their resolutions tend to be somewhat lower in pixel quantity. However, newer devices have a bigger pixel density, which actually may result in a higher definition even if it is in a smaller surface. Take this into account and develop nice websites with images and layouts that fit the intended audience’s screens.

Don’t Waste Your Audience’s Patience

Being on the run means you don’t have time to wait for long load times or to look for a button on the screen. All the information should be relevant and neatly arranged with navigation buttons that make the user feel comfortable to click around and read the website, if it is not friendly to the user you will drive him away.

Break It Up

If it is necessary, break articles into smaller parts that are easier to read and that also load faster. This way you will have your visitors compelled to keep reading and browsing your site. Also, by breaking down an article into smaller parts you promote internal linking which is beneficial for search engine rankings.

Whatever You Do

Don’t take up space or time from your visitor with unnecessary text or images. Users nowadays look for precise information regarding a subject and usually get out – don’t fight this just try to find a way to keep them interested so they come back. If you flood their screens with things they don’t want to see they’re unlikely to become avid readers of your news even if they do have an interest in the content.
