Did you know Google will be expanding their use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in their search results. Consequently, users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimized for their devices.
To get help with making a mobile-friendly site, check out Google’s guide to mobile-friendly sites. If you’re a webmaster, you can get ready for this change by using the following tools to see how Googlebot views your pages:
- If you want to test a few pages, you can use the Mobile-Friendly Test.
- If you have a site, you can use your Webmaster Tools account to get a full list of mobile usability issues across your site using the Mobile Usability Report.
So what does this mean for you?
If your site is not considered RWD, you will begin falling in the search results. In the constant quest to appear in the top listings, you now need to have a mobile friendly website – in addition to great content packed with relevant keywords, proper use of H1 and Alt tags, outbound links and active social media outlets.
