Google Mobile Update - Are you Affected?


Keeping up with Google may cause headaches but cannot be ignored. Their latest update will see mobile-friendliness used as a ranking indicator. If your website isn't optimised for mobile and mobile devices, it's likely that your mobile search rankings may suffer.

But before you rush out and find a web developer to help you update your site, consider how you are affected and if you need to act on this urgently.

For example:

  • What percentage of your visitors currently view the site on mobile devices?
  • How many visitors do you receive to your site every month? Is it enough to warrant making the change?
  • Do your customers find you via Google searches? Or do they already know you and your domain name so search traffic is not a priority?

The answers to these questions may help you before you consider making the investment.
