Websites not mobile friendly will lose rankings in Google search results!
A change to how websites are ranked by Google’s algorithm takes place on Tues. Apr 21. The search giant is going to be transforming the way in which organic search results show up determined by web sites which are viewed as mobile-friendly mainly because 60% of web traffic is now derived from various kinds of mobile devices. For anyone that has not heard the news, the algorithm change might well have negative repercussions starting tomorrow. Sites without text and formatting suited for mobile devices will be affected the most.
The update was formerly announced in a blog post in Feb. Here is part of that post. “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. Consequently, users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimized for their devices.”
Many are referring to the change as Mobilegeddon because of the detrimental effects it will have on millions of web sites around the world. A whole lot of smaller businesses will undoubtedly be seriously shocked that the amount of targeted traffic to their websites has fallen substantially. This really is about to have an effect on millions of sites on the internet.
