Chances are, if your website has been built four years ago or longer, it will properly not be optimized for use on current-day devices. Just put your website to the test and view it on your smartphone or tablet, this is how a visitor most likely experiences your website. Does it require an upgrade to make it ‘mobile friendly’?
