If you haven’t optimized your website for mobile devices, the consequences are clear and simple: your website will be demoted in Google's search rankings. Here's what you need to know.
On Tuesday, April 21, Google is updating its mobile search algorithm. The update will change the order websites are ranked when users search using their mobile device. After the major update, mobile-friendly websites will be favored, and naturally, ranked higher than others. This means your MSP website needs to have:
- Large text
- Easy-to-click links
- Mobile-friendly plug-ins
- The ability to resize and fit on small screens
Google made an announcement in February telling webmasters to prepare and design for mobile devices. The company stated that “[users] will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimized for their devices.” But what does the update mean for MSPs like yours? What happens if your website isn’t mobile-friendly?
If you haven’t optimized your website for mobile devices, the consequences are clear and simple: your website will be demoted – going down in search rankings because your website simply doesn’t give searchers what they’re looking for in the age of mobile devices.
