Google seems to have the final word when it comes to the cyber universe. The world’s largest search engine controlling the internet and site ranking is now cracking down. “Mobilegeddon” is here.
If your website is not mobile-friendly for your readers, Google’s new algorithm will move your website down the line; decreasing your traffic and making it harder for mobile readers to find your site in their search engine.
So if you rely on shoppers coming to your site for income, it might be time for a design update.
As Google said in a statement, they want consumers to “find content that’s not only relevant and timely, but also easy to read and interact with on smaller mobile screens.”
If you’re not sure if your website is “mobile-friendly,” no problem – Google has a site for that: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/
With web designers and SEO coders already charging an arm and a leg – sometimes in the six figures – Google’s new rules could increase design rates.
