    One could be forgiven to think that a mobile SEO strategy entails the same things but this is not entirely
    true.Mobile SEO is a little different because smartphones
    are not designed like desktop and laptop computers.

    Users have smaller screens, tend to use the keyword with
    a few fingers, text prediction features not present in PCs, etc.
    Also, most smartphone users tend to use their smartphones when on the move e.g.
    in the bus, when driving etc. These factors will necessitate the creation of a
    mobile SEO strategy that accommodates the above variables. There are a few things you
    should consider when coming up with a mobile SEO strategy.

    They include: Ease of use – You have to give the user as much information as
    possible without having a lot of content. No mobile phone user wants to navigate
    through a content heavy site when driving. Make
    it very easy for people to use your site no matter where they
    are. Different keywords – Mobile SEO entails incorporating keywords
    being used by mobile users.

    normal web. You have to rethink the keywords to use. Superior browsing experience
    – With the exemption of a few sites, most mobile users do not visit
    the same sites on the desktop and smartphone.

    This means that they will gravitate towards mobile sites that
    offer a superior browsing experience without considering the quality of
    the corresponding desktop web site. This level playing field allows anyone to get high rankings with a good mobile
    SEO strategy. That being said, there are a few very effective tips you could incorporate into your mobile SEO

    discounts being offered by a certain restaurant etc.· Think about the browsers – There are different mobile browsers currently in use.
