Google made a giant change today that could effect your businesses

Today Google is making a major update to its mobile search algorithm that will change the order in which websites are ranked when users search for something from their phone.

The algorithm will start favoring mobile-friendly websites (ones with large text, easy-to-click links, and that resize or are “responsive” to fit whatever screen they’re viewed on) and ranking them higher in search. Websites that aren’t mobile-friendly will get demoted.

About 60% of online traffic now comes from mobile and Google wants users to have a good experience whenever they click on a mobile link.

Overall as many as 40% of top websites are not currently mobile friendly.

This mobile friendly test will let you know if your site is up to date or will warn you if you need work (not mobile friendly).
