Mobilegeddon Is Here: Latest Google Mobile Search Algorithm Update Favors Mobile-Friendly Websites
Last February, Google announced that starting April 21, there will be major changes to its mobile search algorithm, involving how websites are ranked on Google search results on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. This new update to the algorithm places mobile-friendly websites on higher ranks than those that are not optimized for mobile use. When we say mobile-friendly websites, basically these are the websites that have less complex versions of their desktop sites, with large text, easy-to-click links, and that resize to fit the screen they are viewed on. These are websites with responsive web design that adapts the layout to the viewing environment.
Content is King; But So is User Experience
When Google search users search for something using their mobile devices, the relevant and mobile-friendly websites will appear first. About time that Google made this update, as most of online traffic nowadays come from mobile, and this will provide more convenience and better experience to users. Sure, relevant content is important; but user experience is also equally important – your website should have the right content and they must be readable.
