Traditional Website obstacles when Mobile Devices are used:

Google is using a different set of search algorithms for mobile devices than the ones used for desktops and PCs and prefer to rank mobile friendly sites ahead when a search is performed on a mobile device.

One of the major reasons why SEOs need to think about mobile today is that mobile search results on feature phone or smartphones differ from the search results that appear on a desktop browser.

Traditional websites are designed and built wider to accommodate wide screens. When displayed on a mobile device you will get a partial page or tiny content which makes it extremely difficult to read and to get the full picture. The navigation tabs are small and often require horizontal scrolling.

Traditional websites are designed for a higher bandwidth environment and can handle applications like video, Flash etc.

Mobile devices are limited with the speed they can display information. At the same time, mobile users are looking for immediate results and this causes a conflict that results in aborting your site and looking for other options.

9 out of 10 mobile visits result in a purchase, call or visit.

That number affects your ability to turn a site visitor into a paying customer. Mobile browsers are very result oriented. They want it easy, fast and clear.
