Mobile-Friendly Wordle Image

Are you going mobile or will you be left behind? 

Starting April 21, 2015, Google’s algorithm will change once again.  This time, it will lower the ranking of sites that are not mobile friendly.  This is a reflection of the shift of internet users to mobile devices.

According to Danyl Bosomworth at SmartInsights.com,

  • 80% of internet users own a smartphone
  • 91% of internet users own a PC
  • 47% of internet users own a tablet

The pattern of usage emerging indicates that PCs still dominate the workplace, mobile is used during commuting times and tablets are gaining ground in the evening.  52% of digital media is accessed via Mobile Apps.

Nothing is more frustrating than trying to use a site that has tiny text and missing graphics.  So, Google has a point.  Use Google’s tool to test your site.

Is your site mobile-friendly?
