Google officially announced today that starting in May 2016 they will begin significantly ranking better Mobile Friendly websites and penalizing those sites that are not responsive or have mobile versions of the website.

Check out Google’s announcment here: https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2016/03/continuing-to-make-web-more-mobile.html

They started ranking mobile websites higher last year and now it isn’t an option.  You must have a mobile friendly website or face the consequence of lower mobile search rankings.

On April 21, 2015 Google will be rolling out their mobile update.
What this means for you, your business & your website is:
If your website is not mobile friendly it will suffer in the mobile search results on Google.

  • Google will assess your websites mobile friendliness on a page by page basis
  • Your site will need to either be:
    • Responsive – adjusting to the size of the browser window / viewport efficiently
    • Mobile Site or Pages – having specific pages only for mobile (m.domain.com)
    • Dynamically Serving – serves the correct code once the device type is identified
  • Google will significantly weigh image load time
  • You should not be using small text or flash

You can find out if your site is Mobile Friendly by using this tool provided by Google: Google Mobile Friendly Test
