Warning! If your website is NOT mobile friendly as of May, 2016, you’re in BIG trouble.

This has been a long time coming, however now it looks like we’re about to see some serious action from our friends over at Google.

‘Mobilegeddon’ as it was named by the industry last year refers to the algorithm update that Google released last year, favouring websites that are mobile friendly.
Due to the increased use of mobile devices like phones and tablets, Google released an update that favours websites that are optimised to mobile, over those that aren’t on searches that come through a mobile device.

This basically means that if someone is searching for you from a mobile device and your website is NOT mobile friendly, then it has less chance of showing up in a search query than another website that has been optimised for mobile.

As of May, 2016, Google has announced that it is going to be progressively increasing this signal, meaning that if you’re not mobile responsive, you’re in big trouble.

This is going to have a serious effect on businesses that choose not to act, so I strongly encourage anyone that this is going to effect, click on the link below, so we can get your mobile friendly website set up for you ASAP.
