“Google’s Mobilegeddon…is your website ready?”

Over the last few years we have **written a few articles and talked to clients in great length concerning the importance of having your website mobile friendly (responsive design website).

Starting April 21, Google will use mobile-friendliness as a ranking factor in searches (noted on Google’s blog). This means if your competitor(s) have a responsive design website (mobile friendly) they will more than likely move ahead of you in the search results, dropping your website further down in the rankings.

Google is only keeping up with the profound use of mobile devices, providing optimized search results for their customers. We have all been there, visiting a website which is ‘not’ mobile friendly, not a pleasant experience. These none-mobile friendly websites will be eliminated from the rankings giving responsive design websites their day in the sun.

Is your website ready? If not, contact us, we can help!
