Google About to Penalize Your Website

Mobile now accounts for 60% of all online traffic.  How your website performs on mobile devices matters, and Google thinks so as well.

Starting April 21, Google will begin penalizing websites that are not mobile-firendly or mobile-ready. Your website will drop in ranking when Google considers that your website is not optimized for being displayed on mobile devices.

So what does mobile-friendly mean?

A mobile-friendly website is one that adapts to the size of the screen and the device with which the user is browsing your website. This allows vistitors to your site to have the best experience on a mobile phone, tablet or desktop. The information, layout and images are resized and rearranged to better fit each screen size and allow users to better navigate and locate the information they are looking for.

If your website is currently not mobile optimzed, or you are not sure if it is, let us know, and we can help you look at what your options are to make sure your website stays relevant, mobile friendly and in good standing with Google.
