New Updates May Change Your Mobile Search Rankings
Google rarely shares with the world definitive dates about when their algorithm updates will happen … but just recently, they did.
In a recent statement, the Internet giant announced that more mobile friendly sites will appear in search results conducted on cell phones, as well as relevant app content.
On April 21, 2015 Google is making an update to their algorithm that will affect mobile rankings. Basically, Google is preparing to give an extra boost to sites with a mobile design. If your website does not condense into a mobile version your mobile rankings could, and likely will, suffer.
Note that this is only for search queries made on a cellular device. This update is not (yet) affecting the rankings of a website from a desktop or tablet, even if it is not mobile friendly.
So, what does this mean for you? If you have a mobile site – nothing. If you don’t have a mobile website and want to continue to rank in cell phone searches, you need to get one.
