Google Predictions for 2014: Mobile Won

Mobile Visitors Outweigh Desktop Visitors

If you have been on the fence about converting your website to a mobile friendly, responsive design, it is time to climb down and get in the rodeo, desperado. I have been harping on this already. Eric Schmidt, Google’s Executive Chairmain, recently spoke on this topic. The bottom line?

“The trend has been that mobile was winning. It’s now won.”

Mobile Is Not Just a Future Trend, It Is A Fact Of The Present

Remember when no one had heard of social media? As it emerged people liked calling it a trend, even a fad. Schmidt openly admits that Google missed the boat on social media.

“At Google, the biggest mistake I made was not anticipating the rise of the social networking phenomenon. Not a mistake we’re going to make again.”

He goes on to say that they will not be making that mistake again. Case in point? The move to mobile.
