As Evan informed us in his most recent blog post 3 Signs It's Time for a Website Makeover, more than 50% of online searches are performed on a mobile device. But that's not the only astounding mobile statistic out there. Consider the following:
- There are over 1.2 billion people accessing the web from their mobile devices
- 80% of all internet users use a smartphone
- Smartphone usage increased 394% between 2010 and 2014
- In March of 2o15, the number of mobile-only adult internet users exceeded the number of desktop-only internet users.
So clearly it's no secret that mobile has taken over the world. And if you are anything like the HIVE team, your phone is never further than an arm's reach away. So it makes total and complete sense that you would want (or, in our opinion, need) a mobile optimized website.
