Google sends warnings to mobile-unfriendly sites
Get your website Mobile Friendly NOW! ~ leave your competitors behind!
Last week, Google sent tons of warnings to websites that have “critical mobile usability errors”.
Although these were just warnings and they don’t mean a penalty, it may be high time to refresh your knowledge of what makes for a mobile-friendly site and get a mobile plan before Google gets more serious about it (before it adds more weight to the mobile-friendliness ranking factor).
Why is mobile so important to Google?
Over the recent years, it has become obvious that the multi-screen Web will be the future (that is, the average Internet surfer will use several devices to complete a goal).
|For Google, nearly 50% of all traffic is now mobile|
|This holiday season, 22.5% of all online sales were conducted on mobile devices|
|Over 80% of Americans second-screen using smartphones/tablets while watching TV|
|90% of users move between devices to accomplish a goal (which is mostly shopping)|
Is mobile-friendliness affecting Google ranking yet?
No doubt, Google is deeply invested in motivating webmasters to step up their mobile optimization efforts.
- Google now labels mobile-optimized sites “mobile-friendly” in mobile SERPs
- “Mobile-friendly” sites get a slight ranking boost (Google is believed to be testing this now)
- Google said they were ready to downgrade sites misconfigured for smartphones
So, why wait? With all these signals coming straight from Google, it’s best to get a mobile strategy now — and stay ahead of the curve in the future!
