Are You Ready for Google’s “Mobilegeddon?”
If you’ve been spending too much time at your desktop computer, chances are you may not be ready for Google’s April 21st “Mobilegeddon.” Huh?
Starting Tuesday, April 21, all mobile Google searches will favor sites that are “mobile-friendly.” And that could change how your firm’s website shows up using the search giant’s much coveted SEO. Google explained it as: “[Users] will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimized for their devices.” Makes sense considering that 60% of search originates from mobile devices.
Make no mistake, this is a big change. Google has been warning folks for over two months now that this day would come. Last year, they dipped their toe in with the “mobile-friendly initiative” but now they are getting tough.
