Is Mobilegeddon Killing Your Business?

What is Mobilegeddon?

Mobilegeddon is the name given to what is known as a Mobile Apocalypse.  This global event was announced back in February by Google. Mobilegeddon  is a name given by webmasters and web-developers to the Google’s algorithm update of April 21, 2015. The recent scare from Google was quite the eye opener for website developers and their clients. 

How does this affect you?

What this means for you is that if your website is outdated and not mobile friendly your business listing will drop in the rankings and your site may get hit with a ranking penalty. Most people do their searches on their mobile phones and they usually tend to pick the first websites that are listed on top. This is where Hosting NSB can help. We will redesign those old websites that are not google compliant and make them mobile friendly. 

What should you do now?

You should test your website using Google’s Mobile Friendly Test to find out if your website is mobile friendly.  If it is, wonderful you have an excellent Web Developer but if you do not we strongly suggest you contact your Web Designer. If you do not have one we will be extremely happy to help as we would not want to see your business rankings drop. You can also use Page Speed Insights to see if your pages are mobile responsive. Here at Hosting NSB we make sure from the moment we start building a website that it is Google compliant. 

It is recommended that you correct these websites before you lose your business listings online. Here are more tips on how to find a professional Web Developer (What you need to know when choosing a web designer). If you are ready to get started with us click here Hosting NSB.
