There is a growing change in the use of mobile devices to surf the internet.  Welcome to 2013. People are no longer waiting to go home or to work to turn on their computer to look something up.  They have their computer with them in their purse or pocket. With the growing surge of mobile devices, ensure that you are keeping on trend.   


3 things to check to ensure that you are mobile friendly:


1. Check your website to ensure that it is multi mobile-friendly, meaning that it can be viewed on different types of mobile devices such as iPhones, iPads, Blackberry's, Samsung Galaxy phones, etc. Remember, there are a variety of platforms and all diferent sizes of viewing devices out there right now.


2. Ensure that you are constantly monitoring sites such as UrbanSpoon and Yelp if you area restaurant, or TripAdvisor, and for other tourism related industries. Ensure that your listing looks good on their mobile app. 


3. Make sure that your location is accurately listed with Google and Google maps. Your positioning can be edited directly with Google map maker.
