The next big Google algorithm update is coming up on Tuesday, April 21st…and many sites are not ready for the change.
Specifically, Google is going to start penalizing sites that are not mobile-friendly in their search engine rankings. What does this mean to you? Well, if you own a website, it can mean that you are about to lose potentially a ton of search engine traffic if you aren’t ready to embrace the mobile crowd.
From Business Insider:
Google announced in February it is making changes to its mobile search algorithm to give “mobile-friendly” sites — those with large text, easy-to-click links, or those with responsive design (which means webpages uses the same URL whether they are on desktop or mobile, but “respond” according to the screen size of the device) — higher rankings in search results.
How to Tell if Your Site is Ready for the Google Update
If your site is using responsive design, then you’re probably okay.
If you’re not sure (and apparently a lot of people aren’t), no worries! Google has provided an awesome tool to help find out if your site is mobile friendly.
