Mobilgeddon is here! So what does this mean for you and your business online, right? After weeks of hearing chatter about a big search change, Google made true on their announcement and released a major update to their algorithm (search spiders) last Tuesday. You might have seen some emails in the past week regarding the update. This change will have a gradual to sudden effect on how your business is displayed on search results and the overall visibility and ranking of your business’ website on Google.
For weeks we have been hearing that Google, and maybe other search engines, was going to make major changes to how the search engine will rank and display websites based on whether or not the site was “mobile-friendly”. Search results will now display if sites are mobile friendly and will take mobile responsiveness into account in search results on mobile devices. This can help or hurt your current rankings if your website is compliant with these new factors. Being mobile, to this point, has been a choice and enhancement a business could provide a customer for a better user experience. With the new change, a lack of a responsive website will hurt your visibility on the organic search results on mobile devices, and can be the big difference in overall revenue and success for your company online.
