Is your Site Going to be demoted in Mobile Searches?

austin mobile websites

Google is about to do something and unlike most things – they WANT everyone to know this.

On April 21st they have announced there will be a new update that affects mobile results. Plain and simple if your website isn’t mobile friendly it will not be served up to mobile devices.

And mobile friendly doesn’t just mean that your desktop website squeezes down into a phone screen. nope.

It means does it change its layout to adapt to the smaller screen, the touch to call feature etc.

Not sure?

Here’s Google’s own mobile site test – you can stop reading and scroll down and post in your website and see if its considered mobile friendly – if its a yes – you’re golden, if its a no – well, you better not need consumers who use smartphones. ***Hint – mobile searches overtook desktop searches last year.

 

If you’re not sure if this matters to you or not – assuming you have some software that tells you where your website traffic comes from – desktop or mobile, you CAN do nothing.

One good thing about this google update is that  its going to happen in “real time”. Unlike some of their other updates – they run them and if your site gets caught in the net, you can make changes but you won’t see a change until Google runs that algorithm again which could be 2, 5, 6 or 12 months.

So should you wait and later determine its cost you business, you can install a mobile site and then once your site is crawled again you will see your site restored into mobile results.

Not sure what the big deal is about mobile – read about mobile here.
