SEO REPORT: Google Updates Algorithm to make "Mobile-Friendly" a Ranking Factor


Do you have a mobile or responsive site?

If not, as of April 21 you may find it harder to rank in Google’s mobile search results.


Google announced algorithm updates that will have a “significant impact” on mobile search results worldwide for mobile searchers. The update improves rankings for sites that provide a mobile-friendly experience to searchers on mobile devices, and, by association, demotes sites that do not.

Note that the mobile-friendly update only affects mobile search results — i.e., searches from smartphones and tablets — not searches conducted on a desktop or laptop computer. In addition, the algorithm is applied worldwide, page by page, on a real-time basis. “Worldwide” means that the algorithm update affects mobile searchers and search results in all countries at the same time, rather than just rolling out in the U.S. first.

Having a mobile website is essential in order to remain competitive in today's Internet landscape. Google is driving this trend forward and there is no escaping the fact that unless you join the current mobile revolution, your business will be left behind. Current analytics research indicates that more than 50% of current searches are coming from smartphones and mobile devices. This trend will only continue to grow. Can you afford to disappear from the search results of more than half of your customers? For some industries, it could be even more.

However, you don't have to completely start over. Stratatomic can develop a mobile website that can live alongside your current website. Your website can be updated to auto-detect if a viewer is using a mobile device, and then re-direct them to the appropriate corresponding mobile web page. So you can keep your existing desktop website, and build a separate mobile website that is optimized for smaller screens and mobile searches.

Are you ready for the mobile revolution? Stratatomic can help create a mobile web presence that can co-exist with your current site so you can get on board with a minimal investment. Contact us today to learn more.
