07 Apr #Mobilegeddon Arrives April 21, 2015: Are You Prepared?
Here at Engage the Crowd we encourage all our clients to create a mobile friendly website in order to maximize conversion rates. We recently brought attention to Google warning webmasters about non-mobile friendly sites being dropped in the rankings and now Google will officially bring #Mobilegeddon upon us on April 21, 2015.
This change will affect mobile searches worldwide in every language and have a significant impact on search results and rankings. Non-mobile websites will drop in rankings while those who are optimized could see a significant boost with little effort. The ROI could be massive.
Right now nearly 50% of all visits to sites are from mobile devices! Half of the potential clients visiting a webpage are doing so from their phones and tablets. Even before #Mobilegeddon rains down upon us the conversion rate for non-mobile friendly sites is much lower. We all want instant gratification and to be told what to do. Look at the improvement in metrics MTV achieved when they launched their mobile responsive redesigned website. Every measurable metric improved. This is just one example of the drastic influence a mobile friendly website can have.
Right now nearly 50% of all visits to sites are from mobile devices! Half of the potential clients visiting webpages are on a phone or tablet so even if you are ranking high on Google searches for your keywords right now you are still losing potential clients due to a non-mobile friendly user experience. And come April 21, 2015 forget about even being seen in the rankings.
