Is Your Web Site or Blog Mobile User Friendly?

With that being said, today I want to talk to you a little bit about the wonderful world of mobile Internet and how its explosive growth could be leaving you missing out on scoring traffic to your web site or blog. Ironically, it was just recently on July 8th, 2008, The Washington Post released an article explaining that the United States is one of the top countries to make use of Mobile Internet and I believe that to be true. If you consider this situation for a minute you might start to see where I am coming from here. I am not the only one who uses my mobile phone to surf the web. While there are still large numbers of individuals who don’t, these numbers are decreasing every day.
I use my mobile phone to surf the web. In fact, I use my mobile phone more to surf the web than I use it to talk on it. Strangely enough as I am out and about in the mall or in the grocery store I see more and more people walking around aimlessly while they are using their mobile phones to surf the Internet. So, the question I have to ask you is this: what will happen if someone attempts to access your blog or web site using their mobile device? Will your site load up? What will it look like? Most importantly, will your mobile visitors like it?
For me, as a mobile Internet user, I am constantly on the hunt for sites that look and function very well on my mobile phone. For the time being, there two Internet worlds. One is the traditional Internet that people have been using for the last ten years or so. The second, is a new Internet world, the world of mobile Internet. When I use my mobile device to surf the web, I tend to cling to the sites that I discover to be more functional in my mobile device. In fact, I feel terrible when I can’t enjoy visiting some of my most favorite sites using my mobile device.
So what does this mean for you? Well, the way I see it, I see this as a huge opportunity for you to shine. I see this as being a great way for you to push your web site forward over and beyond your competitors. Think about it this way. If you were to invest the time and possibly a little amount of money into making sure that your web site or blog was mobile friendly, you could then advertise that fact to your readers and site visitors. Upon discovering this fact, your readers and visitors will remember this and grow even closer and more fond of your site, knowing that they can visit you anytime they want.
Imagine how powerful your web site or blog could be if people were able to access it while shopping at the mall. Imagine how useful your web site or blog could be if people were able to view all your high quality content and articles while on their lunch break at work. Today we live in a world where many people feel like they can’t live without the Internet. They feel such a connection with the Internet that they purchase mobile devices such as a mobile Internet ready cell phone just so that they can take the Internet on the road with them. Unfortunately, there isn’t a large percentage of sites that are conscious of what their readers and site visitors want. People want more mobile friendly web sites. If you can be a pioneer in your niche market, then you can easily become king.
