So… Because of its sheer importance, I’m going to get right to the point. Have you heard of Google Mobile-geddon yet? If you haven’t, you certainly need to!
What You Need To Know
In a nutshell, here’s a great excerpt from popular online news source Business Insider explaining what it is:
“On Tuesday, April 21, Google is making a major update to its mobile search algorithm that will change the order in which websites are ranked when users search for something from their phone.
The algorithm will start favoring mobile-friendly websites — ones with large text, easy-to-click links, and that resize to fit whatever screen they’re viewed on — and ranking them higher in search. Websites that aren’t mobile-friendly will get demoted.
This change could be apocalyptic for millions of websites, which could suddenly find that they’ve lost their coveted ranking, so it has earned the nickname ‘Mobile-geddon.'”
