Are You Mobilized?

To find out if your website is considered mobile friendly, use this Google-provided link: Mobile-Friendly Test.

If your website’s not mobile yet, better get a move on! We’ve got some suggestions for you.

On  April 21st, Google’s long anticipated and much discussed new criteria for internet searches on mobile devices takes effect, (all languages around the world) and there’s bound to be an impact on the search rankings for many businesses—particularly the kinds of businesses that tend to be searched on phones and tablets—retail, restaurants, and so forth.

With these changes, websites that are responsive or optimized for mobile devices will be ranked higher; and sites that don’t make the grade will sink in mobile search rankings. The reason for this, according to Google, is to make the Web a more effective and useful experience for mobile users, since that is how people, in ever greater numbers, are accessing the internet.
