Medical Practice Mobile Website Doomsday Coming April 21st?
As many of you know more and more users are using smart phones and tablets to view your medical practice website. In fact our statistics show that roughly 50 percent of all medical website traffic is coming from mobile devices, with roughly the same number coming from desktop/laptop users.
Google has finally made an official announcement regarding their changes when it comes to mobile search. Starting April 21, Google will provide a higher rankings to those websites offering a great mobile experience. Why April 21st? Google is providing time for website owners who do not have a mobile site to get there site in tip top shape.
What does this mean for you?
If you currently have a responsive medical website, great! You will see better search results than those who do not have one.
If you do not, I suggest looking into upgrading quickly! Not only will a responsive site look better to your patients, it will look better to Google as well. Looking better to Google means more people will find you when they are looking for your services and specialty.
Here at Omni Medical Marketing we stay ahead of the coming trends. Thinking like Google helps us provide the absolute best digital marketing solutions to our clients. We started responsive before anyone else in medical practice and plastic surgery website design. Take a look at what I wrote several months ago, well before Google’s big announcement.
If your current site isn’t mobile friendly call us today. We will be glad to listen to your needs and put together a proposal that is best for you and your practice.
