Don’t have a mobile website? You can’t hide any longer. (You may be noting that DMN doesn’t have a mobile site. This is something we’re working on.)
On Tuesday, April 21st websites that aren’t mobile friendly will be penalized. Google searches made from mobile devices will lower the rankings of non-friendly sites, and will boost the ranking of sites that are mobile optimized.
This applies to all industries and all languages, no one is safe from the new requirements. Around 80 percent of adults have smartphones, so these changes should only help you.
Google offers a mobile friendly testing tool so you can find out if your website is up to par. If your site doesn’t pass, the tool will tell you why and will let you know what you need to do to improve the site.
