How the Increased Use of Mobile Is Changing How We Search

Mobile is changing the digital marketing industry as a whole, not least the way in which we search and browse the web. With UK SEO at an all time high, you should start considering the different ways you can adapt your strategy in order to level up your website. Our experts have taken a closer look at the importance of mobile friendliness, rise of voice search and the unbeatable benefits of mobile apps, below.


In order to make sure that your website is ranked highly in the search results, you need to make sure that your site is mobile friendly. There are a number of ways that you can do this, including by running a “mobile-friendly test” which will enable you to determine exactly how mobile-friendly your site currently is.

Voice Search

Voice search really came into play in 2019, changing the way that we write content. In the New Year, it is expected that half of all searches will be made by voice, meaning that it is now more important than ever to make sure that your sites content is written for humans; not just search engines such as Google. Essentially, you want to make sure that your copy is written how it would be spoken, using natural language that everybody is able to understand.

Time Is A Key Factor

When comparing mobile searches to a search made on a computer, time means far more. Throughout the day, the number of mobile searches increases, with the largest amount of searches being made between 12-6pm. As a result, you need to make sure that your website is able to handle a high number of visitors, which is especially true during peak seasons. Whilst this depends on your business, Easter, Summer, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas and the New Year are all key events to look out for.

Mobile Apps

Mobile apps are highly convenient, improving user experience and making it easier for users to search for the products and services that they love. Downloading and installing an app is also much more efficient that saving a website URL to your “favourites” as it can be accessed at any time and is often easy to do so. Not only are they faster and more convenient, but they provide instant access and offer the opportunity to set up push notifications and other instantaneous updates to ensure that your audience remains engaged with your content.

Long-Term Projects

Whilst mobile search can be beneficial when it comes to making a quick search, it is also used to help support ongoing projecting, meaning that more and more people are using mobile search to understand something that they want to address in the near future.

The Future Of Mobile

Whilst no one and no business can be sure of where mobile is heading next, we can be certain that the above factors need to be carefully considered in order to make sure that the success of your business is not disturbed.
