Why Your Website Needs to be Mobile-friendly or Responsive
The days when the majority of internet searches were carried out from a desktop computer or even a lap top have long gone. The number of surveys which have pointed out this simple fact are numerous, but a report published toward the end of 2016 by web analytics company StatCounter found that the number of mobile searches had, on a global basis, officially passed the number of searches from desktop devices.
The figure for global searches of this kind was 51.3% for mobile against 48.7% by desktop, but exact figures vary from country to country. In India, for example, the mobile search figure is as high as 75%. In the UK it is 55.6% and in the US 58%.
