April 21, 2015
It’s still not too late to get a mobile friendly website and ensure
your site retains its Google rankings.
If you have a website then this news is very important for you!
Few things get a webmaster’s attention quite like waking up to a Twitter feed filled with news about a major algorithm update. Most algorithm updates come with vague or no warning, but Google recently announced, "Starting April 21, we will be expanding our 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 our search results."
Game on Google!
Google may have announced the update early, but it hasn’t exactly been forthcoming with details. Webmaster trends analyst Gary Illyes did share a few details in a recent Q&A.
- Responsive design does not have a ranking benefit
- Mobile friendliness is determined at the page level – not sitewide
- Tablets will not be affected by this update
- Google is currently working on a dedicated mobile index
