Google Mobile Algorithm Update April 2015

What is this Google mobile-friendly algorithm update?

Google will be changing the way results appear on mobile search. The new ranking system will be based on websites that are deemed mobile-friendly by Google. This isΒ  due to the fact that more than 60% of traffic now, comes from mobile devices! That statistic alone should make website owners sit up and take note!

At the moment this algorithm update will only effect mobile search results.

If your website is not mobile ready, it really does need to be updated, this is going to be a MASSIVE shock to millions of website owners because if their website is deemed mobile unfreindly, their rankins WILL drop.

Don’t panic, to check if your website is mobile freindly, follow the steps below.

1. Visit https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/

2. Paste in your url

3. Give the big G a minute and you’ll have your answer.

This website is built using the Headway theme which is very mobile freindly, but I will be updating this website soon,
using Thrive Themes, which is fantastic.

Local Business Internet Marketing 2013

Wow! What an incredible creation the internet is, It has opened up the whole world for business!

Whether you are a global business or a local brick and mortar business, keeping up with the latest internet marketing changes is imperative. Whether you like it or not, the internet is here to stay and is only going to get BIGGER!

Social media marketing was all the rage in 2012 and you should have a facebook page, twitter account, youtube channel and pinterest board (depending on your business) at the least.

2013 is heavily focusing on mobile. Is your website mobile friendly, how does it look on a smart phone? More and more people are using mobile for search and they want fast answers. When people search on desktop computers they have a little more time, maybe 5 to 8 seconds before they will click off to somewhere else, on mobile it’s a lot less, so you had better give people the information they are looking for. For example, if you have a restaurant, they will want to know location, contact phone number, menu and prices, that’s all.

If you have your own business you need to get up with the internet latest, or get left behind!

So many business owners believe that because they have a website, that’s enough, oh no, that’s the easy bit πŸ™‚
