Just Look What a Disaster It is Out There

If Pizza Hut with their resources, and given their major focus on mobile. Their mobile website is a disaster. Their Desktop website is a disaster.

Studies say people want web pages to load within 2 seconds. On the Pizza Hut site once you select a store then click on Get Started, over 28 seconds later after 164 page elements, taking 1.8 MB, the web page is finally ready to take an order. That is insane.

Domino's and Papa John's are better, but nowhere near good enough. They all have big problems with their websites.

Let's compare their websites. Looking at page loads, syntactical page design errors, mobile friendliness, and usability errors.

Pizza Software's Home Page is 99% Mobile Friendly. The 1% off the mark is due to the 1 image on the page. The W3C Mobile OK Validator is very strict. It's a little too much to ask to keep a web page under 20K when, for example, Pizza Hut and Domino's pages are well over 400 times more bloated.

Domino's both technically and in usability sucked the least out of these 3. Their process is more streamlined requiring fewer clicks. Domino's had few really dumb mistakes. Domino's store locator requires a street address for a carry out order. A few very small images that took from 2.6-4.5 seconds to load.

Papa John's was worse. On mobile page the store locator was not functional. For carry out you could look up by city and state or zip code. This page wanted both, but would clear the city and state if a zip code were entered and would wipe the zip code if city and state were enter but mistakenly wanted both.

And Pizza Hut, a disaster, unbelievably screwed up.

The Desktop Browser or Mobile Browser

For a restaurant the mobile browser is indisputably much more important than the desktop browser.

A person is 5-6 times more likely to be away from home when they get hungry.

Your lowest cost and possibly the best source of new customers is a mobile Website. You need a mobile Website and you need one Now.

The mobile optimized Website is a very complex subject. Too complex to explain. There are some easier explanations in terms of what is required. As in Simple and Usable. There are so many different mobile devices, the mobile software that operates the phone, and mobile browsers. Each combination has different capabilities.

There are many way to approach the mobile web. My approach is the lowest common denominator. Make the site work on the simplest web enabled phone and it will work on all the others. Even that is not simple. There are very few Web Designers that understand the mobile web. It is too technical to grasp.

I researched mobile website design for the past year. If you are viewing this site on a mobile phone you already understand not many sites are mobile friendly. Like Pizza Hut, I tested the Pizza Hut mobile site for mobile friendliness using the W3C Mobile OK Validator. On a scale of zero to 100, they score a zero.

Mili-Seconds Count

There are many ongoing studies that track the "user experience" with respect to page load time. I know this. Obviously Pizza Hut, Domino's and Papa John's do not. Why is that? These guys know the importance of the Web and especially the mobile web, where the mobile web is going its evolution. On August 18, 2010, Pizza Hut announced they believe in the near future 50% of their orders will originate from a mobile device. I think they are wrong. I think it will be more than 50%.

Somewhere in these corporations, there is a disconnect between the boardroom and the web design team.

Two companies that watch their own page load times very closely as a matter of survival. Google and Amazon. Google watches search result page load time and how many abandon their search when pages load slower. Amazon relates page load time to sales, as in how slow page loads lose sales. Their finds are astonishing. My guess for Pizza Hut they probably lose almost all their online customers.

Yahoo also found that a 400ms slower page would see 5-9% more people leave before the page finished loading.

Google Search found that a 400 millisecond delay resulted in a -0.59% change in searches/user.

Another study by Google found that an extra 500ms in loading time resulted in 20% drop in traffic.

For every 100ms increase in load time of decreased sales by 1%

If your site is 3 seconds or slower you could have lost almost half your visitors.

At peak traffic times, more than 75% of online consumers left for a competitor's site rather than suffer delays

88% of online consumers are less likely to return to a site after a bad experience
