Have you checked that your website is optimized for tablets and smartphones?
What has previously been an SEO strategy has become an SEO must-have.
Google recently announced that they will start penalizing websites that are not optimized for mobile devices. It was a fair warning and something you should not take lightly. Global internet users and spending more time than ever searching on Google from their mobile devices. This statistics increases every year and can’t be ignored.
This will mean a drop in mobile search engine rankings. This is not good if you have spent a lot of money on SEO services to get you where you are in the serps.
As we know Google, they want to give their real clients – the searchers – the best value for their time and if your website is not responsive (adapting the website according to the device screen) you can’t expect your website to be visible for people searching Google for your products and services.
This algorythm update is important and Google should have done it a long time ago.
