Make Your Website Mobile-Friendly By April 21st Deadline
Google has announced that it will start using a website's "mobile-friendliness" as an important ranking factor starting April 21, 2015.
Chuck Price on Search Engine Watch has called it Mobilegeddon!
Google has indicated that "mobile-friendly" websites will have a significant advantage in mobile search results. Google wants to provide their users with websites that are optimized to be viewed on mobile devices - and thus will rank and show those pages that have been deemed "mobile-friendly" much higher in their results.
Since mobile search is rapidly increasing, it is important to capture these users by making sure that your website will pass the "mobile-friendly test".
If you do a Google search via a mobile device, you may notice under the link and before the description, some sites show a "Mobile-friendly" designation. This will become an even more important ranking factor after the April 21st deadline.
If your site is not mobile-friendly, your site may become all but invisible from the top mobile search results.
Being mobile-friendly has never been more important. Now it's critical to the success of your site.
It is important to take action today, to build a website that optimizes the user experience on mobile devices. The good news is this doesn't have to be a complicated or expensive project.
