There’s been a huge uproar over the last few months over the impending Google mobile friendly update. The long and short of it is that Google announced that they’ll be using the mobile-friendliness of websites as a ranking signal. To what extent is still unclear, but the fact remains that having a mobile-friendly website will definitely get you a boost when it comes to organic search.
There’s been an incredible amount of noise surrounding this particular topic, (I even saw a #Mobilegeddon hashtag on Twitter), and rather than buying into the hype and giving you a list of 800 reasons to implement a mobile version of your website today, we opted to give you some useful insights that you can use to keep your website in good graces with the gods of Google.
This article is going to be part tutorial, and part findings and research from an internal audit we did of our own website, and I’m pretty sure you’re going to find a few hidden gems in here that you won’t see on any of the “end of days” posts that have been floating around the internet. We were definitely surprised with a few of the things we discovered.
