The one big problem for websites is the need to cater to an audience using mobile devices. Your website should be designed to accommodate the smallest smartphone screen size. Almost all mobile devices have video disabled by default to prevent over charges on bandwidth usage. This can be a challenge for designers. Using full screen photos in your responsive design is a good way to engage mobile users and provide them with a good user experience. Google search engine rankings does take into account your website's mobile friendly layout. If your site is older it may be time to refresh the design of your website you may be losing out on a lot of business.
Here at Think Local Design we use optimization and cache software that minimizes your website's code, optimizes images and stores a fast loading cached copy of your website on our private solid state servers (SSD). Most of our websites load in 1.5 seconds or less. Google recommends no more than 3 seconds for a website to download. We take care of the tech stuff so you can be free to run your business without worry.
