Consequently, users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimized for their devices”  Google Webmaster Central Blog

If your website is not ‘mobile’ user friendly, it will have an impact on the ‘search results’ reducing the chance of your website being found.

Google - Mobile Friendly Websites

How can you tell if your website is mobile friendly or not? CLICK HERE

When using mobile:

  1. Does your website ‘re-size’ easily?
  2. Does your website have a defined view part?  Ie. does it re-shape into different sizes as you shrink the screen?
  3. How close are the buttons when your screen has shrunk?  If too close, its not user friendly.
  4. Is the site visually appealing and has motion?

Mobile use is usually part of the journey.  1st steps are taken on desktop and 2nd via mobile to check, clarify etc.

So, what does this mean to you?

  1. Firstly, if you do not act you will see a reduction in visits to your site over the coming months
  2. The number of visitors by mobile devices will grow
