Update on Mobile Friendly Website Design Google Algorithm


Mobile Friendly Website Design

I wrote a post about mobile-friendly website design a couple of weeks ago ( ) and this is just an update on what is happening so far with the rollout. If you have been paying attention to what is going on in the SEO world at the moment, or perhaps you were just watching the RTE news on Tuesday night, but you may have heard about Google ’s latest Algorithm change coming into effect.

Well, the general opinion so far is that there have only been small changes in search engine rankings, but realistically this is not going to last.

Almost 70% of online searches are made from smart devices and Google are going to make you update your website to a mobile friendly one.

At the moment there seems little point in updating your website, but this may rapidly change! I would suggest that if your website is a few years mobile friendly website designold then, like a car that is no longer reliable, you may want to consider updating to a newer model. If you like your website as it is, then you can probably get a new mobile-friendly theme installed for a good bit less than a whole new rebuild.  It could also be a smart move to get in ahead of the rush. If 2 thirds of the world’s websites are non-responsive (which they are!)  then its likely that once the Google Algorithm update kicks in worldwide, then in 3 months there may well be queues of companies waiting to get their websites updated.
