Mobile first design

Due to the increasing number of people browsing the internet from their phones, Google now operates from a “mobile first” standpoint. Essentially this means that your website will be assessed by Google on how well it caters to users visiting from their mobile phones.

Your thomsonlocal Essential Website has been built from the ground up for mobile devices. This responsive design means that your website can adapt to all screen sizes and device types ensuring everyone gets the same high-quality browsing experience.

All things being equal, a website that offers a high-end experience for smartphone users can enjoy a boost in search engine rankings over a website that doesn’t.
