Is your website mobile friendly?
On April 21st 2015, Google rolled out substantial changes to its mobile search algorithm for browsing its search-engine with a mobile device (cellphone, tablet, etc.). This algorithm update will have a detrimental impact on the search engine rankings of any website that Google deems non-mobile-friendly.
The implications for small and local businesses that rely on their Google Map Listings and their Google+ Local rankings to drive visibility in their local markets, website traffic and in-store visits – are quite serious.
Test your website using the Google Mobile Friendly Testing tool: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/
An independent study released by Google in 2014 cited some very important statistics about how consumers use Google Search:
- 72 percent of consumers who searched for local information on their smartphone visited a store within 5 miles.
- 50 percent of consumers who conducted a local search on their smartphone visited a store within a day
If your business does not rank for mobile based searches, over time you could potentially loose a significant portion of sales and in-store visits. Ensuring that your website is responsive is critical to your continued visibility for Google local search. And in most cases, it will cost you more in missed opportunities than it would to fix the problem.
