Is your website mobile ready?

Google’s most recent updates to its search algorithm have given websites that are designed to be viewed on mobile and tablet devices a dramatic preference. Finding websites that are not designed for mobile on the first page of Google is soon to become a thing of the past.

You may have noticed a new “Mobile Friendly” text that appears at the beginning of your search results when using a mobile device. This indicates sites that these websites have passed Google’s test. Websites that fail to meet these conditions are penalised and placed significantly further down the page of a Google search.

Considering that now over 52% of Australians are using their mobile device to locate local businesses, it’s vital that your website is easily found. Unsure whether your site is mobile optimized? Luckily Google has given its users an easy tool to determine whether your site passes the test. Simply go to Google’s Mobile Friendly Test Page, input your domain name and click analyse. You can read the official press release from Google by following this link.
