“Google Adds ‘Mobile Friendly’ to Its Search Criteria.”

Our business is to help you achieve your goals on the web. You built a website to build a web presence, so you need to pay attention when the search giant Google alters the playing field. We are here to help you navigate the ever changing landscape of the web.

The big change is that you will lose search traffic if your site is not mobile friendly.

Is your site mobile friendly? If it isn’t, you will now perform poorer in Google searches. Google has added “mobile friendliness” to the 200 or so factors it uses to list websites on its search engine. Over 30% of all searches now occur on mobile devices in the US. Even if your current mobile traffic is low you should consider the impact of these numbers on your site traffic going forward. Google has seen the handwriting on the wall, explaining their big push in this area.
