So you have a website - but now you have heard about "Mobilegeddon". Googles latest algorithm change is big news in regards to SEO.You can see the way our site views below ... on a PC Monitor ( Note the 2 column width )
According to the Ofcom 2015 Communications Market report; 33% of Internet users consider their smartphone their primary online device compared to only 22% a year ago. We now spend on avberage twice as long on our smartphones as we do on our PCs and Laptops, and the facts show that smartphones have overtaken laptops as the UK's most popular Internet device .
The advent of 4G availability and other technology improvements appear to be behind this change. Smartphone ownership is also increasing rapidly with approximately 60% of the adult population using a Smartphone - and more importantly - using it for businesses.
OK SO WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO ME ?
You get one chance to make your presence felt - and viewing a standard website on a Smartphone - simply compacts the std page down making it illegible without "pinching " your screen to zoom in. So from April 2015 Google has made it clear that it will add extra weight to sites which are built to be Mobile Friendly.
So if you have a Mobile friendly site - and your copmpetitor doesnt - then you will rank higher on any search from a Mobile device. A mobile friendly site will adjust Text and Graphics to fit the screen of your Smartphone ort Tablet properly - thus offering your customers a great " Mobile experience " and Google will reward this with higher ranking on Mobile search results.
