Increase Your Rank in Google Search Results With a Mobile Friendly Website

Over 45% of shoppers visiting IndieCommerce websites are on mobile devices. If your IndieCommerce site is not mobile friendly your customers are getting frustrated and Google is ranking you lower in search results. Not only are you losing sales, but you are making it harder for customers to even find your website. If your store is using the IndieLite platform, your website is already mobile friendly.


To upgrade to a mobile friendly, responsive IndieCommerce theme, please contact the team today at Ask about these two new featured themes:


Mix and Match - (updated)

Zircon - (new)

Visit these examples from your mobile device and see how they work!

Thanks for reading. Feel free to email us with any thoughts, questions, or suggestions.
