Is your Website #MOBILE ready ?
Google recently announced:
“Starting April 21, 2015, we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in our search results.”
This is one of the largest algorithm updates that we’ve seen in #Google’s recent history and will have a big impact on where your site measures up within the search results. Let’s look at what you can do to avoid any negative impact from the update and how to use it to your website’s advantage.

With mobile search accounting for 20% of all Google searches, mobile optimisation is an important step forward for any business website and for the user experience of websites visitors.
It doesn’t come as a surprise considering that Google first motivation is to provide the best user experience and as everyone knows navigating through a non-mobile friendly website can be very frustrating. That said though, there are other financial incentives for Google to roll out this change.
