If your company’s website is not responsive or mobile friendly, Google’s new search engine algorithm update dubbed “mobilegeddon” could result in your business being excluded from mobile search results.
In the next few weeks, beginning on April 21st, Google plans to add a mobile element to the way it ranks pages on its search engine, leaving hundreds of unresponsive websites lower on the ranking scale.
Google says it will “appropriately” rank websites that are currently not mobile friendly on a lower scale. What does this mean for your business? If your website is not compliant with the new changes here’s what’s likely to happen:
- Your website will see a reduction in search traffic
- Your website’s search ranking, built over years of work, may be downgraded
- Your business may be compromised from earning potential leads as a result
What is the difference between a responsive site and a non-mobile friendly site?
- Easier navigation
- Faster loading time for smartphone or tablet
- Larger type and graphics for easier readability
