There are updates that are optional, but this one is probably the biggest change in Google’s ranking algorithm. Starting April 21, 2015 – mobile friendly blogs and sites will rise high in Google’s search results. Why? Mobile friendliness is now part of its ranking signal.
I have useful contents, but my site is not mobile friendly – would it affect my search ranking? Definitely, YES! There are several people who are preferred on using mobile devices in searching helpful contents on the web, and Google will display relevant search results from mobile-friendly sites. In other words, when I Google for something using my Smartphone, the search results will display the contents of websites that are optimized for mobile devices. This is how it affects your site ranking.
When you rank high today on mobile searches, after implementing the new algorithm, you might lose your rank significantly to an extent that your site’s organic traffic will be cut into half or worse than that. More often that not, your site receives a significant traffic percentage on mobile platforms – you must ACT now.
Overwhelmed? Don’t be – just breathe and relax. I am writing this because I got help for you. If you don’t want to lose you traffic and SERP ranking on Google, then decide now to convert your WordPress site or blog into a mobile responsive website. Not yet convinced?
