The time to move to mobile is now

A recent NZ Herald article has highlighted that "more websites are now loaded on smartphones and tablets than on desktop computers, a milestone that underlines how computing is rapidly shifting to mobile devices and which threatens companies reliant on traditional PCs."

Statcounter, a research company that tracks internet use across 2.5 million websites, said 51.3 per cent of pages were loaded on mobile devices in October, the first time they have surpassed desktop and laptop computers.

In addition to this, Google recently announced that it will soon split its index between mobile and desktop.

Google’s Webmaster Trends Analyst Gary Illyes said at Pubcon in Oct 2016,  that Google will create a separate mobile index within the next few months.

This mobile index will become the primary Google index. The newly separated desktop index will not be kept as up-to-date as the mobile one.

This means it is now more important than even to embrace mobile if you haven't already done so. If you still have a desktop only website, you need to seriously consider moving to a new responsive website.
