What will your site show when your customers search for you or your products and services? Is your site Mobile Friendly? How will it look on their phone? Over 50% of site visitors are now from people’s smartphones, not from their desktops, therefore, it’s very important to get things right for mobile.
The Facts About Google’s Requirements.
- Google is actually pushing us forward, which is good. Your site’s indexed rankings will not affect desktop-users’ search results.
- If your site is not, it’s a strong possibility that your site will not show up on the first or second page of search results, favoring your competitors’ mobile-friendly sites, for instance.
- If someone is searching specifically for your website (www.yourwebsites.com), you probably won’t have any problems.
- Your main audience is most likely using mobile devices to see your website. Ask your webmaster about your mobile users’ data from site analytics.
What Do I Do If My Site Fails?
- First, check to see if your site really makes the cut. Not all mobilized websites are coded to Google’s specifications (when did they become the Internet police?) To see if your site is coded correctly enter your URL here: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/
- If your site didn’t score, there are options. Updating your site with a few adjustments can help. Therefore, you’ll have a chance of meeting those requirements with little fuss.
- Have your webmaster or developer re-code the site as a responsive theme. This will future-proof your site and make optimal use of the various screen sizes out there.
