Google is at it again. Their next algorithm update is April 21, 2015. It is rare that Google gives us warning of an algorithm change, so we wanted to warn you right now, THE END IS NEAR!
What does this mean for you? It means your website may lose rankings and traffic. Is your website mobile friendly enough for Google to avoid penalties and loss of rank?
Here is a quick way to know if you website is mobile friendly enough for the new Google algorithms:
1. Test your website using this: Google Mobile Friendly Test
2. Test your website using this: Google Speed Test
The Google Mobile Friendly test above only checks the individual page you key in. You must key in each page you want to test. Your main home page may pass this test and will not be impacted, but your secondary pages may not be in such good shape. Even if you have a stand alone mobile website, it may be impacted by this new Google update.
We strongly recommend you speak to a digital marketing specialist who understands the technology of your website as well as Google’s requirements before making any decisions on what elements need to be fixed. If you do not have a webmaster, or digital marketing specialist, you can contact us at 847-931-1511. We can save you from Mobilegeddon!
