Mobile Optimization and Your Google Ranking
Are You Mobile Optimized?
Did you know that whether or not your website is mobile optimized determines how it ranks on Google? In February of this year Google stated that mobile optimization will indeed be a ranking factor. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in search results. Consequently, any websites that are not mobile-friendly will be pushed down on search results and will be more difficult for users to find.
Test Your Site For Mobile Compatibility
Google has built a mobile-friendly test site that will do the analysis for free. If your mobile page passes, no action is needed. If your mobile page fails, then it is likely we need to make changes to your site and rerun the test until it does pass.
