2015 Technology Leadership Award Winner:
DealerOn Website Design
What car buyers want and dealers need: a website that wins
Follow the Leader
In the past couple of years we’ve seen a lot of information written and published regarding responsive website design. Much of the content has focused on its effect on search engine rankings.
That’s easy to understand due to the fact that Google announced its desire and preference for a uniform URL structure that presents the same basic information regardless of device. This preference helps prevent drops in ranking based on inconsistencies between devices. The simple truth is: Google is the leader and it wants websites built on responsive technology that presents nearly the exact content, appropriately formatted to the size and functionality of the device.
Instant Gratification in the Palm of Your Hand
If you haven’t been keeping up on the staggering mobile usage statistics, we don’t blame you. Mobile has continued to explode over the past several years and no dealer can ignore the importance of this battleground.
- 60% of Internet access is mobile
- 90% of adults in the United States have a cell phone
- Smart phone users check their phones more than 150 times each day
- 34% of smart phone users go online, mostly using their phones
- 1.9 billion users will search online using their smart phone in 2015
With these massive increases in mobile search, it’s critical for dealers to have a high-quality, professional responsive website. People haven’t just changed how they think about mobile, mobile technology is changing how we think about websites. The convenience and speed of the average smart phone is radically modifying our expectations. Having a responsive website will make sure your dealership is providing mobile visitors with a great experience where they’re able to navigate, view, and engage with all of your content.
