An ever increasing amount of smartphone traffic to websites means you should be looking at ensuring phone numbers on your website can be clicked so potential customers can call you quickly.

Things to look at:
If possible, make sure that you do not have phone numbers displayed on your website as images.

Easy To Do:
It is actually incredibly difficult to do, here is an example:

Please call us on 01733 902070

Change this to:

Please call us on <a href="tel:01733902070">01733 902070</a>

Once a user clicks on your telephone number, their phone will alert them and prompt you if you would like to call the number, with the number displayed.

Note we have not used an international phone number above but if you have potential customers abroad you should use the international prefix for your country, as an example, ours would be +441733902070

In this post we will not explore native application links so will leave this for a future post.
