Is your site mobile-friendly?

If you have not heard about it yet, then let me tell you that Google has rolled its Updated Mobile Algorithm to check if a site is ready and optimized for displaying on small devices, such as, a smart phone. If you own a website or blog, and if you have registered with Google Webmaster tools or AdSense, eventually Google will ask you this question.

At this moment, I don’t want to speculate on the effects or penalties, in terms of search rankings, it would impose on a site. We will obviously know about it in the near future. However, Google insists that you double-check your site(s) to confirm that every page is fit for displaying on a small device, such as a smart phone.

Take the First Step

To ensure that your site is mobile-friendly, you can test it using a test tool designed by Google.

You will need the expertise of a Web Developer at this moment.
