At the time of developing a mobile website, you think of typography and decide not to experiment with font colors and types. You also think of content and choose it cautiously that would engage and entertain visitors. Even, you also predict your visitor’s clicking trail in order to make it easier for them to reach their desired place. In short, you are trying to make your mobile website user-friendly, but have you ever considered what mobile consumers really expect from your website? Do you know what features they want to see in your mobile site?
