Google Has Done It Again! Why have a Mobile Friendly Website?

In today’s business world of lightning fast information, you’re either on top of the game or mobile friendly websiteyou’re gone. This brings about the importance of having a mobile friendly website and why you should hop on board quickly.

The answer to mobile web design friendliness is simple but how do you know if your website is ready for mobile devices such as cellphones, etc.?

Just a quick (but very important) question for you today. Is your website(s) mobile friendly?

The reason I’m asking is that Google has recently added another update to their ever-changing search engine algorithm.

This newest change can really affect your number of visitors – and customers. Don’t let this little twist affect your online business in a big way!

Has Google Really Announced this Mobile Search Change?

I know you get bombarded with mailings from marketers telling about every little SEO change but I don’t always go by second-hand information.

So, here’s the direct quote from Google. You can find it on their Adsense page and in other places. Simply put, I copied and pasted it below for you. ..

“Your site’s mobile-friendliness is now considered as a Google Search ranking signal.”

 

Is There an Easy Fix to the Mobile Ready Website Problem?

Maybe. I’ve just finished updating my theme for Webmaster Course. I checked the friendliness in the test area. You can check your site quickly at..
