Huge Google update to affect your website
For small businesses who have been putting off optimising their websites for mobile use, now’s the time.
Google will start making mobile-friendly compliance a factor for ranking websites in smartphone searching. This means making your website mobile friendly is no longer a choice, but a must have… if you want your business to be found by today’s mobile dependent society.
Google states, “Starting April 21, we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in our search results. Consequently, users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimized for their devices.”
Google provides a test to analyse if your website has a mobile-friendly design, test yours out now.
Note: Not all mobile websites are created equal, as Google has strict certification rules (so everyone should test their websites)
At Ministry of Design all our websites are mobile friendly. This allows for an easy, navigatable and enjoyable thumb-friendly experience for users browsing on their smartphone. We set it up so that your website is viewed differently on a mobile phone; with bigger buttons, a customised menu and bigger fonts.
