Google’s Upcoming Mobile Search Changes

You may have heard or seen in the news recently articles about Google’s upcoming ‘Mobilegeddon’ – as it’s been called by some in the business. It sounds scary, but there are economical solutions if this affects you. Read on for more information.

What is it? What does it mean?

  • Use of mobile devices (tablets, smartphones) has exploded on the web in just the past few years. Every month more and more website visitors are arriving on mobile devices.
  • In order to serve those users better, Google is going to start prioritizing search results for mobile users. Sites which have a mobile friendly layout will rank higher than those that do not.
  • If your online business relies on organic search traffic*, this could impact you.
  • Starting April 21st, Google will begin rolling out their new mobile search result algorithm.
