It is time for step 10! If you missed step 9 you can find it here! If you follow this blog, this step should come as no surprise, we have talked at great length about the importance of creating a mobile friendly environment for your customers. But how can having a mobile friendly site help your site rank higher in search? Back in April of this year, Google rolled out an update that boosts the ranking of mobile-friendly pages on mobile search results. This means that having a mobile-friendly site could actually affect your ranking when someone searches for you or your product from their mobile device!
But why do your results matter on mobile? According to Google, 10 countries (including the United States and Japan) more searches take place on mobile devices than on computers. When indexing your site Google is now checking to see if searchers will be able to find the information without tapping or zooming, to deliver a high quality experience for the searcher.
Now we need to check to see if your website is mobile friendly, and google offers a free tool to do just that, so click here to use Google’s Mobile-Friendly Test.
If you didn’t pass the test then give us a call and we can help set you on the right path to mobile success.
That was an easy step! We will see you back here for Step 11!
