Just How Big is Mobile Web Usage?
- In 2011, in the US, 90 percent of mobile subscribers have an internet ready phone.
- One in five Americans use the mobile Internet every day, according to the 2011 Mobile Internet Attitudes Report from Antenna Software. That’s up 17 fro 2010.
It’s only going to get bigger – as the study found, the only reason mobile internet usage is not growing faster is the experience was frustrating for many.
Maybe it’s because YOU don’t have a mobile web site!
It’s really not just a question of IF you will have a mobile site, it’s a question of WHEN you will get yours up.
Here’s What Mobile Internet Users Want in a Mobile Site
- Ease of Use
- Quick loading
- Less images, more quality information
- Their cellphone to go to the mobile site instantly…not stuck on the main web site
- Ability to shop or sign up or contact the site owner in a click or two.
- Content, Content, Content
But There Are So Many Questions…
WAP or XTML
Drop the WAP. It’s old school. You are targeting the smart phone owner. Less and less people are buying the simple phones. More and more are wanting the full-featured internet experience of a smart phone.
Do I get a sub domain or .mobi?
Either option is good if you’ve decided build a new mobile site from scratch. Personally, I don’t feel it necessary to purchase an expensive .mobi domain when a mobile.yourwebsite.com will do. (Or yourwebsite.com/mobile/)
