Make Your Website Mobile-Friendly by April 21 with Dealerwebb
April 15, 2015
Google recently announced two key changes to its search algorithms that will impact the way you search for sites on your mobile device.
The first change, which has already taken effect, enables mobile apps to be ranked higher on Google search results pages. Mobile apps that use Google’s App Indexing feature would receive better mobile search page ranks. For now, this feature is exclusive to Android app users signed into the App Indexing service.
The second change, which will take effect on April 21, will expand the reach of mobile-friendly websites. Using revised algorithms, Google will increase the rank of mobile-friendly sites in its search results pages. According to the company, with this algorithm “users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimized for their devices.”
Both of these updates by Google are designed to increase the accessibility of mobile-friendly content and provide a better search experience for mobile users.
Webmasters knew this day was coming for years, and now it’s finally here. Now that Google has announced its mobile search updates, Internet and web-based companies have no excuse not to be prepared. More than ever, people regularly rely on mobile searches—so if your company’s site isn’t fully optimized, it’ll be left behind.
