35 percent less successful completing Web site tasks via their mobile phones than they are on a regular PC
Nielsen Norman Group researchers found that the average success rate for users to complete tasks via mobile was only 59 percent.
“ A surprising and annoying thing was that it was so hard for people to actually access mobile sites,” said Raluca Budiu, user experience specialist at Nielsen Norman Group, Sunnyvale, CA. “Some companies have mobile sites, but they do not direct users to them.
“ Also, the preferred method of access to mobile sites is search, and search engines do not make it easy for users to find mobile sites,”
Finally, researchers stressed that Web sites designed for PC compatibility will most likely render improperly on mobile phones and create a whole new set of additional obstacles for the mobile Internet user.
However, there is still hope for mobile Web developers, publishers and marketers: User performance could be improved by 20 percent by creating mobile-optimized sites, according to Neilsen Norman Group
