Did You Survive Mobilegeddon?

As promised, this week Google has rocked the online world by demoting websites that were not mobile-friendly and boosting mobile-friendly pages on mobile search results.Although most web developers provide their clients with a mobile-friendly version of their site, many websites are lagging behind the mobile revolution. With these updates, searchers can “more easily find high-quality and relevant results where text is readable without tapping or zooming, tap targets are spaced appropriately, and the page avoids unplayable content or horizontal scrolling.”

So why did Google do this? Well, I bet you are reading this on a mobile phone! If you aren’t, then the next 6 out of 10 visitors will, as mobile has officially taken over the desktop for online searches. As we move into a more mobile world, Google is pushing websites to provide users with the best experience on whatever device the user is on.

How will I know if my website is “Mobile-Friendly” according to Google? Well, Google has provided this handy link to check: Click Here. You should then see a screen like this:

This is Mobile Friendly!

If your website is not mobile friendly, you will get the following message: 

Not mobile friendly

 

 

If you find that your website is not mobile friendly, please give us a call, we will be sure to talk to you about your options to ensure that Google give your site the love it deserves!
