The Aftermath Of Mobilegeddon
It has been three weeks since the event called #Mobilegeddon.
Google previously announced that on April 21st they would use “mobile-friendliness” as a key factor in ranking websites to display in search results on their browser.
Right away following Mobilegeddon Tuesday, many sites experienced losses. Searchmetrics, an SEO software company, reported traffic drops for sites like reddit.com (-27%) and nbcsports.com (-28%). No one was immune if their site was not deemed “mobile-friendly” by Google as even usps.gov experienced a drop of 20% in traffic.
Checking a number of local industries on Google, I found that around 50% of the websites at the top of the list are “mobile-friendly”.
If your site is not mobile friendly, is this doom and gloom news for you?
Depending on how completely tied your business is to search engine results your business is will drive your need to get mobile-friendly. If you are selling online, your site should have already been optimized for mobile. Also, if your competitor’s sites are mobile friendly, they are probably passing you by in search engine ranking.
Mobile-friendly isn’t the only thing that drives search engine ranking, but right now it is the hot topic.
