When the internet first started, everybody searched for things on their desktop computer. A little while later, laptop computers were designed and people could search for things on them from different locations. Today, most people are not using desktop computers. They're usually not even using laptops to search for things they need. Some of them are using tablets, but most people are using mobile phones to do the majority of their searches. You see, because people have their cell phones on them at all times, looking for things they need is much easier when they simply use their cell phone to do searches. What many website owners don't realize is that it is vitally important for them to have a mobile friendly website. Not only is it important for potential customers who use their mobile phones to search for products and services, but it's even more important for the search engines.
As of April 21, 2015, Google changed their algorithms and made mobile friendly websites mandatory in order for your site to be ranked higher in search results. If you don't comply with this rule, you may find that your previous high page one rankings are now gone and your website is much harder to find when you type in your most important keywords or key phrases. Mobile friendly websites are also known as responsive sites. That means when you shrink your site to the size of a mobile phone screen, it looks like a mini version of your website. Everything people can see on a computer screen is visible on the mobile phone. Things may be in a slightly different position, but for the most part, everything necessary to give people a complete look at your desktop website is visible somewhere on the responsive, mobile friendly website.
Is Your Website Mobile Friendly
So how do you know if your website is mobile friendly? The first question you'll want to ask is, when was your website created? If you had your site designed the year you started your business, it probably isn't mobile friendly. If you had your kids design your site a while back, because it was the cheapest way to do it, it's probably not mobile friendly. Even if you hired a professional designer, unless you specifically requested it, your site is probably not mobile friendly.
One way to check to see if you have a mobile friendly website is to bring it up on your computer, grab the window with your mouse and shrink it in so it's about the size of your mobile phone screen. If you can't see the entire web page - if only a portion of the page is showing and a lot of the copy, graphics or photos are missing - your site is not mobile friendly. It's just that simple.
