Do you like your website ranking highly in Google searches? Do you want it to continue to do so? Then it is more important than ever to have a mobile friendly website. If you don’t, it could severely affect your business and where your website appears in searches using Google, despite any efforts to use SEO methods to be found (by using popular words which people use to search for your industry).
If you’ve had your website for several years, you need to think immediately about updating it to make it mobile friendly because Google has started to rank websites according to whether they have been designed to be viewed on mobile devises like telephones and tablets.
On its official Google Webmaster Central Blog, Google said that from April: “We will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in our search results. Consequently, users will find it easier to get relevant, high-quality search results that are optimised for their devices.”
If your website is not mobile friendly, don’t be surprised if it starts to appear on a page lower down the ranking. It may not change its position yet, but it soon could.
