On Apr 21 Google will Punish Mobile Unfriendly Sites

… and favor responsive, mobile-friendly sites!

Is your site responsive? What about your client’s site?

On April 21st, Google is rolling out an algorithm change that will affect search results that are displayed when a user is on a mobile device. If a site isn’t mobile-friendly, Google will not rank it as well as responsive sites.

  1. First on your list should be making sure that your website is responsive and mobile-ready, and Google has a tool to help you do that: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/
  2. Next, take a look through your past client’s websites. Which ones were built in the pre-responsive era? What about sites that the client didn’t want to pay for the responsive ‘feature’ at the time?This is especially important for clients that are targeting super-locally, and even more so for restaurants or similar sites that are often searched when users are out and about on their phones.Send a quick note to them and let them know about Google’s change.
