No matter how beautiful your website is, how perfect your key words, or how great your current ranking — Google is now ranking websites on their mobile friendliness. In the world of SEO this major change has been nicknamed “Mobile-geddon” because of how “apocalyptic” it could be for millions of websites. Is yours one of them?
When was the last time you viewed your website on your iPhone, android phone, or tablet? Weirdly positioned graphics, off center text, anything that makes mobile viewers have a less than positive experience will now work against you in Google. Yes, that means you can lose your page ranking, it may be more difficult for people to find your website, and you may not rank as high in your key words.
“Businesses that depend on people finding them through localized search—like, if someone typed ‘coffee shops in Sunnyside, Queens,’ into Google on their phone—could see a decrease in foot traffic as a result of this update”, says Duda CEO Itai Sadan in Business Insider. “Google has always been about relevancy, and content is king,” he says. “But that’s changing. Yes, they’re saying content is still extremely important, but user experience is just as important. It’s not sufficient to have all the right content—if people come to your site and the content is there but it’s not readable, that’s not good.”
