Mobilegeddon Strikes!

Mobilegeddon Strikes!

Today Google “pushed the button” on a new search algorithm which would begin to factor in a website’s “mobile-friendliness” as a ranking signal – meaning that those sites which weren’t optimized for smartphones’ smaller screens would see their ranks downgraded as a result. You can read more what Google considers “mobile friendly”.

These changes should kick in within the next week, and Google clarifies that the changes will only affect a site’s search ranking on mobile devices – and it only applies to individual pages, not entire websites. It also only impacts searches done on smartphones, not tablets.

As a result, according to TechCrunch, approximately 44% of Fortune 500 companies, and undoubtedly millions of small businesses are going to see a significant drop in the number of visitors to their websites. It’s left many calling today “mobilegeddon”.

Business and the world will go on, we assure you. The good news, if your website is already mobile optimized, you should see an increase in rankings. And if your website is not, there is a way to fix it. A sure-fire way to test your site is to use Google’s Mobile-Friendly Test. For questions or help making your website mobile friendly, we’re a phone call away.
