With the growth in the number of smart phones, tablets and the associated web browsing from these devices. It can be incrediably easy for you to penalise your site visitors if you are still forcing visitors to your site to view the full web site.

The growth of browsing on smart phones is one of the fastest changing aspects of the WWW, with 49.2% of mobile users browsing the internet on their phones.

Is your site mobile ready or are you still penalising visitors to your web site who are using mobile devices with large downloads and incorrectly proportioned layout?

A responsive web site reacts to the device your visitor is using to view your site.

With a full web site on a mobile, you are penalising visitors:

  • With full site downloads on mobile data plans are usually more expensive since the download costs associated with mobile data plans are higher than non mobile plans.
  • Forcing them to scroll left and right to view view your site, since most web sites are built around landscape orientated monitors. Mobile phones are generally held in portrait orientation.
  • You may also be forcing visitors to download large graphic files or applications which will not work on mobile devices. Adobe recently stopped supplying Flash for Android devices - and iphones have never supported Flash. So if your are still using flash on your site many visitors may no longer be able to access the product and services your are trying to provide them.

If you have a series 3.X version of Joomla running your site, you must ensure it is updated to Joomla 3.9.28 at a minimum as lower levels of Joomla 3.X have a security risks.

Current version of Joomla 3.9.28 / 3.10.2 or 4.0.3

Note: Joomla 3.10 and 4.x were released 17/8/2021 - however these required careful analysis of your web site before upgrading.
3.10.2 - being a stepping stone to Joomla series 4.
Joomla 3.X will be support until September 2023.

Joomla 4 is recommended for new sites where posssible.
