The Importance of Mobile Usability and Speed to you Website

0 Comment

Google has always kept improving and updating it’s search algorithms. Some of it’s updates such as Penguin and Panda have been well reported in the press but not all tweaks are as widely announced.

It looks like the latest major update wasn’t given a name by Google but has quickly become known as ‘Mobilegeddon’. As the name suggests Google has stated that website with errors and other non-mobile-friendly issues will start to be penalised in Google rankings.

It’s easy to run a free test to find out how mobile friendly is by using the Google Mobile Friendly test. Alternatively if you use Google Webmaster Tools (and you should be) you can find additional information from your Search Console under Search Traffic – Mobile Usability.
