Time is running out to not have a mobile friendly website. Last month, we advised our clients on the Google Mobile Friendly Algorithm Update that will begin this month. Many in the industry are calling this update “Mobilegeddon.” Sounds ominous! It is a fact that starting April 21st, Google will be expanding its use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal.
In a recent study, 44% of Fortune 500 web sites failed the mobile-friendly test and are at risk of being penalized in search results when that update rolls out on April 21st. You can do better than those Fortune 500 companies! Take steps now to make sure your website is mobile friendly.
