The most important part of optimizing your mobile web design for the user experience is the contact information. This should all be in text and highly visible on your site. The user can click the phone number and be given the option to “call.” They can click your email address and automatically the phone’s on-board email app kicks in with a new email with your address in the “to:” line. The phone’s mapping function can also easily show your location and give directions.
Of course, there’s always the user who does want all the features of a normal site, which is why it’s important to have a link back to the “regular site” somewhere on the web page. Not only is this helpful for users, but also adds another link back to a website’s main page, which helps with search engine optimization.
Once your mobile website is designed and optimized, it’s easy for customers to reach it. They simply type in your regular domain name into their device’s browser, and it automatically redirects the user to the mobile version of your website.
