The day has finally arrived. The day where if your website is not mobile friendly, it will fall off the face of the Google Search Engine forever!!!!
This may be a slight over exaggeration, but from today, Google will rank mobile friendly websites higher.
Most businesses work very hard to get their website high on Google Search Engine, but all of that is about to change, if your website is not mobile friendly. With more and more people accessing websites through smart phones and tablets, a mobile friendly website is vital to reach these potential customers. But now there is another reason to make your website mobile friendly. To keep it on Google Search.
Today marks the day that Google add mobile friendly to their algorithm and it may have devastating effects for some businesses.
The change was first announced in February and Google have released a very useful tool for you to test if your website is mobile friendly by their standards or not. In order for your website to qualify as mobile friendly it should have elements such as automatically correcting the layout/size of pages to fit the screen of the device you are using and having easy to read text.
A Google representative said mobile friendliness was “one of many” factors used by the search engine to rank results, but in a blog post the company said it would have “a significant impact” on search results.
“As people increasingly search on their mobile devices, we want to make sure they can find content that’s not only relevant and timely, but also easy to read and interact with on smaller mobile screens,” the representative said.
