The Case for an Enhanced Mobile Presence

Are the days of desktop sites dwindling thanks to the rise of mobile versions of websites and cell phones? For a rising number of seniors, smartphones are becoming the number one choice of viewing platform over desktop versions, which can have drastic effects on how we approach websites.

From viewing on smaller screen sizes and ensuring your site loads quickly to making mobile searches easy and focusing on effective website design, it’s no secret that a mobile-optimized website presence can make all the difference in user experience. For one of our client-partners located in the Lakeland area, the difference was astounding.

Discover the power of updating your mobile experience to enhance mobile traffic, ensure more seamless viewing and generate leads. 

The Goal

Our Lakeland client-partner needed to port their website from Drupal to WordPress. In making this switch, SageAge took advantage of the responsive website capabilities of WordPress for better UI/UX to increase Google results for mobile users.

The Results

Since launching their mobile optimized and responsive site, the following results have been collected. Compared to the prior year, our client-partner recognized a:

  • 94.63% increase in mobile visitors
  • 46.91% increase in mobile average session duration
  • 23.05% increase in mobile pages/session
  • 16.10% decrease in mobile bounce rate
