Mobilegeddon-Proof Your Site
On April 21, 2015, Google launched one of the biggest algorithm changes in its history. Dubbed “Mobilegeddon” by SearchEngineLand, the updated algorithm is actively seeking out websites that aren’t mobile ready. If your website doesn’t display well on mobile devices, your search engine optimization (SEO) ranking may plummet and Google even warned of manual penalties for the worst offenders, according to SearchEngineWatch. Gartner reports that the majority of American web surfers will be using mobile devices by 2017 (right now it’s in the 40-something percent). Google, as the most widely used search engine in the U.S., almost has no choice but to force each and every website to go mobile or go home.
If you needed a little encouragement to optimize your website and embrace mobile readiness, this is it. To find out how mobile friendly your site is right now, Google offers a free mobile-friendly test.
At Seven Blocks Design, we build “Responsive” WordPress websites. Responsive Web Design (RWD) means that the site responds to the device it is being viewed on. Which also means it’s “mobile-friendly.” All this without having to have a separate mobile version of your site to maintain.
Not only does this help your SEO, but it also makes the experience better for your audience as it provides an optimal viewing experience — ease of reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling — across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones).
