09 Feb Non-Mobile Friendly Sites Being Warned About Poor Search Rankings by Google
With the amount of information being consumed on mobile devices, ensuring your website is a mobile friendly site improves the experience for visitors but will also help keep your search engine ranking from dropping.
Google has recognized this trend to mobile consumption and has introduced a “mobile-friendly” tag next to sites in mobile search results that have been confirmed to run correctly on mobile devices.
You can receive this tag by passing Googles mobile-friendly test and if you haven’t done this already you may soon receive an email from Google warning you of your websites not so mobile-friendly content and the negative impact on your search engine ranking for mobile devices.
The email will inform you of the sites and content not displaying or functioning correctly and includes links on how to make a CMS mobile-friendly.
This is all in an attempt to enhance SERPS for the multitudes of users on mobile devices.
With Google introducing these new standards for mobile sites it can be predicted that they are planning to launch a mobile-friendly search algorithm sooner rather than later.
So if you haven’t done so already check your websites and put in the time to make sure you are mobile-friendly before your site drops in the rankings. Don’t say Google didn’t warn you.
