If Your Site Isn’t Mobile-Friendly, Today is Doomsday

Is your company’s website mobile-friendly? Do you even know?

If you rely on your website to drive business to your company, you need to check your website’s mobile-friendliness. Google’s search algorithm is changing as of today (April 21st) and websites that play nicely with smartphones, iPads, and other mobile devices will be favored in search results over those that aren’t. Websites that don’t have proper mobile functionality could find their search rankings plummeting, which could result in a huge loss of business. After all, they’re calling it “Mobilegeddon” for a reason.

Though it won’t affect results on desktops or laptop computers, iPhone, Android, and iPad users could see vastly different search rankings from their traditional PC and Mac counterparts. As we previously discussed, this represents not only a shift in how people are interacting with Google, but with the way that Google prioritizes search results based on devices rather than other elements.
