Google Algorithm Update – Mobile Friendly Websites A Must!

New Updates to Google Algorithm To Boost Rankings For Mobile Friendly Websites!

In April 2015 Google updated it’s algorithm to boost rankings of mobile friendly websites. What does this mean for you if your website is not mobile friendly? Well, you may start to see a decline in your natural search rankings or even worse, be completely dropped from the results. 

We have all tried viewing websites which are non-mobile friendly, it is frustrating trying to read the small text and navigate the menu systems. With 80% of users searching on mobile devices, Google wants to ensure that all the websites featuring in the top 10 search results are providing the best user experience. It is therefore imperative that Google’s 10 top results show mobile friendly websites. 

To check if your website is considered mobile friendly, you can use Google’s Mobile Friendly Test Tool. Google will analyse your website content and will provide an instant result.

In short, if your website is not mobile friendly, you will start to see your rankings on mobile search drop, even disappear completely. Now is the time to get ahead and get mobile friendly!
