The increasing use of mobile phones has created an opportunity for the development of online businesses. With the inconsistent, expensive and limited network data connections, mobile internet is truly a saviour in many situations. And not to forget that as mobile is handy, internet can be accessed anywhere and anytime. This has prompted the web developers to design websites that are compatible with the mobile phones.

Hence, it becomes really important for the business to have a mobile friendly website in order to expand their markets. The most important feature of any Mobile Website is that it should be simple and easy to navigate. The mobile users look for a mobile browsing experience which would be comparable to their desktop browsing. Here are tips that you can follow to make a good Mobile Website.

Tips For Designing A Mobile Website

  • The content on the Mobile Website should be concise as compared to the desktop websites to make it more digestible for the mobile users. Lengthy and long texts are a put-off for the readers as they have to scroll down the page to read the whole lengthy text. The average word count of any website should be between 70 to 110 words.
  • A Mobile Website should contain both tailored content for the website and the updates about it like blogs, news, posts and events, etc. There should be automatic updates for the frequently changing content and should also be displayed in full length. This can be done by setting up a direct content feed from the desktop website to the Mobile Website with the use of RSS or XML.
  • A Mobile Website should have fewer graphics and if there are any, then they should be optimised for the mobile users. They should be of small size so that they can be downloaded easily and quickly.
  • There should be very few navigation links on the mobile websites and the navigation links should be tuned specifically for the mobile users. Location based links and touch-to-call links on the smartphones are very much desirable by the mobile users.
  • The navigation on the mobile should be a fast one with easy navigation controls. The users should be directly and quickly linked to the content of the website they are looking for, even if there are 2-3 layers to reach.
