Mobile-Friendly Has New Meaning
Is your website prepared for Mobilegeddon (or Phonepocalypse, as it is also being called)?
Not sure what that means? Well, on April 21, 2015, Google is changing its search ranking algorithm to make mobile searches more efficient for phone and tablet users. The crux of the situation is that, moving forward, this change will reward sites that have responsive or “mobile-friendly” web design, ranking them higher in mobile searches, so that mobile-users don’t have to squint, pinch, and expand as much to see the content they want.
Still don’t understand? News tip: your business website needs responsive web design if you want to keep up with, or get ahead of, your competition. At our Seattle marketing company, we see many clients who get 50% or more of their web traffic from mobile web searches. If your site doesn’t have a mobile-friendly, responsive web design, you will become less and less prominent in mobile searches.
It’s kind of annoying, we know. Don’t shoot the messenger though. In fact, submit your info below to CMA and let our web services team upgrade your business website. We specialize in responsive web design at a reasonable rate. Recently, we developed a responsive website for STOUT bar and restaurant on Capitol Hill, as well as Hotel Eastlund in Portland, Oregon.
They call it Mobilegeddon, but the sky isn’t falling… and, with the help of our Seattle advertising agency, neither will your mobile search rankings.
