Google Updates Search Algorithm To Favor Mobile Ready Sites

Starting next week (April 21, 2015 to be exact) Google’s ranking algorithm will include mobile-friendly usability factors. Making sure your site is friendly to phones and tablets is now more important than ever.

It is unclear exactly what effect these changes to Google’s algorithm will have, but they have stated that a site is either friendly or it is not – that is, there is a “yes” or “no” answer to the question – no grey areas.

You can test your own site by going to Google’s mobile friendly testing tool. Put in your site’s URL, and it will indicate if the site is mobile friendly or not.
