So what does this mean for your website?

If your current website is not responsive to different screen sizes and properly configured; Google is making plans to penalise your search rankings.

It’s a harsh truth, but all of the valuable SEO throughout your website could be for nothing if your site isn’t viewable on a mobile device.

We can all agree that a desktop version of a website can be difficult to view and use on mobile devices.

A non mobile-friendly website requires the user to pinch or zoom in order to clearly read the content. Users find this a frustrating experience and are likely to abandon the site. Alternatively, the mobile-friendly version is readable and immediately usable.

Mobile is critical to your business and will continue to be so. It is important to always make sure visitors can have a good experience on your site, whether they’re viewing from a desktop, laptop, tablet or phone.

If your current website isn’t responsive, it’s time to catch up with the times before your website is forgotton.
