mobile change

On 21st of April Google made a major update to its mobile search algorithm, and it is expected to cause some disruption across the web. Those websites not deemed to be mobile-friendly will possibly be dropped down the search rankings, dramatically reducing the number of visitors to a site. This is going to affect millions of sites on the web.

Many sites are likely to be negatively affected by the changes to Google’s secret search formula. You can check if your site is OK by entering the web address here

From today, a lot of small businesses are going to be potentially surprised the number of visitors to their websites has dropped significantly.

Text that is too small to read on a mobile device, plus links that are too close together, are among the reasons some sites will fall down the mobile ranking list.

Why make a website mobile-friendly?

Imagine if a user looks at your site on a mobile device. You should be able, as a user, easily read your page and find the right information and it is not too hard to use.

Having a mobile-friendly site is critical to a business – whether you’re blogging, have a website for your returning customers, or selling products to new clients. It’s important to make sure visitors have a good experience when they’re visiting your site from their mobile devices.

Maybe it’s time to update your current website?

The good news is if you start from scratch there may be an existing template/theme we can utilise. We may be able to reuse your existing content which can hopefully save you time and money.

 

Note: The fall in rankings will only affect searches done on mobile phones and not tablets or desktop computers. But considering that around half of all Google searches are expected to come from mobile devices by end of 2015 we could be looking at a significant impact.
