As Google have now officially announced the roll-out of their mobile-friendly update, which is set to happen on the 21st of April and will likely last for the duration of the week. With that said, there is no better time than the present to ensure that your website is mobile-friendly.
There is no escaping the fact that with each and every new smart-phone release more and more people are using their mobile phones as their first port of call to crawl the web, from online shopping to keeping up to date with the latest updates from their favourite brands and celebrities via social media. So, in order to keep up with the trends, if you don’t have a mobile-friendly website, this is something that you should think about investing in ASAP!
Last week Google held an Google+ Hangout Q&A on the upcoming mobile-friendly algorithm and it appears that the impending update is going to take no prisoners. Claiming that your website will either be classed as mobile-friendly or non mobile-friendly, it seems that Google aren’t offering any middle ground on this one.
As we all wait in anticipation as to what surprises Google’s mobile-friendly update has in store, it is pretty safe to predict that if you do not have a mobile-friendly website in place that this algorithm may give you a big slap around the wrist, whilst you see your fellow competitors that have existing mobile friendly sites in place, most likely thrive in the process.
