It’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s mobilegeddon! Get ready, set and go. Are you ready? If you haven’t heard of Mobilegeddon 2017, then you need to call your tech guru immediately; and if you don’t have one, get one…fast. Mobilegeddon refers to the new mobile-first Index by Google, in which they will create and rank search listings based on the mobile version of your website. If your website looks different on your mobile AND your desktop, you’re in trouble. Bottom line— you need to have a mobile responsive website in order to rank and be found easily. Yikes! That’s right.
Statistics in 2016 showed that 60% of small businesses still have unresponsive websites. But, the transition is catching on. If you’re falling behind the times, reach out to the tech team who manages your website. Or outsource the work. Either way, get the process started today.
Google hasn’t officially committed to the algorithm update, but when they do, your mobile website should be fast-acting, responsive and user-friendly. The more proactive you are about it, the better chance your website won’t suffer a lack of visitors.
