As of November 2016, more users worldwide are accessing the internet from mobile devices than from desktop computers. source

As of May 2015, Google reported more internet searches were completed from mobile devices than desktops. source

Also in 2015, Google started penalizing non-mobile-friendly websites in their ranking algorithm. ie. Mobile-friendly sites are ranked higher than otherwise equal desktop-only sites. source

These are old stats and the trend is not changing. More people than ever before are viewing your website from a mobile device. If your website is not mobile-friendly, it is costing you both in viewer impressions and Google rankings.

Modern websites are built using “responsive” designs. These designs can detect the display size of the device browser, and automatically reformat the website content to best display at that size. These designs provide optimized views for mobile devices, tablets, desktops, and whatever new devices are invented next year.

It’s time to review your website and verify it is displaying a usable design to your ever-growing group of mobile visitors.
