Q: What is the point of Mobile Optimization?

Smartphones are the leading way people/customers view websites, so not having your site optimized for mobile is encouraging a high bounce rate (customers not liking the site and leaving).
Q: What is this SEO that everyone talks about and why does my website need it?
A: SEO is Search Engine Optimization. This helps search engine such as Google or Bing figure out what your website is about.
It is important so that we can lock down keywords for potential customers to find. This would involve indexing the website with Google & Bing Search engines.
Without SEO, it’s like painting a master piece and hanging it up in a dark closet. Nobody will see it. (or are more unlikely to)
