Mobilegeddon is Still Here

About a year ago Google released a mobile algorithm that would penalize website if they didn’t have a mobile responsive site.  It’s fitting to have a reminder about the importance of a mobile friendly site, even a year later. Although, most website templates are responsive, it’s still super important to make sure and test before launching a new site.

If your site is not mobile friendly then you’ll miss out on the following:

  • Pages won’t rank high on a mobile search if the site isn’t mobile friendly
    –Make sure the entire site is mobile friendly not just the home page
  • Could result in bad redirects
  • The search results won’t have the ‘mobile friendly’ caption the meta which could result in a low click through rate
  • Risking an increase in bounce rates

You can check if your site is mobile friendly by using this Google Webmasters tool {click here}. Note that when you are using the Mobile-Friendly Test that it tests the page in which the URL is associated with and not the entire site. For example, submission would only test the home page.
