Google will begin ranking mobile-friendly sites higher starting 21st April

If you didn’t catch Google’s latest announcement, you had better read on:
When it comes to search on mobile devices, users should get the most relevant and timely results, no matter if the information lives on mobile-friendly web pages or apps,said Google in a recent blog post.As more people use mobile devices to access the internet, our algorithms have to adapt to these usage patterns.

"Google, The leading search engine, recently announced a planned algorithm change that could impact websites everywhere, including healthcare websites for medical professionals and Medical practices.  The change in algorithm was announced on February 26, 2015, and it will be implemented on 21st April 2015".

We’ve watched Google pay more and more attention to its mobile searchers.

With mobile search volume continuing to increase, with no sign of stopping, Google has began doing what it could to give it’s users the best experience.

Now, they’ve given you their deadline: 21st April 2015 to be mobile friendly, or your website will lose it's page ranking when search for on a mobile device.

First they they warned us in the search results if a site was not going to play nice on our mobile devices by warning us a site might be using flash but their latest announcement was much more serious.

In the past, they never really gave deadlines as to when the algorithm was going to be updated and they’ve hardly ever used the phrase “significantly impact” because of these changes, so you’ve been warned. :)

This new change means that any search done on a mobile device will only list those websites that will display well on such devices. In essence, more mobile-friendly websites in search results.

Don't just take our word for it!
