Google announced that it would be restructuring its search engine algorithm in order to favor mobile-friendly web pages on April 21st. This means that today the highest ranked web pages on Google are formatted to optimize their visitors’ mobile experience. The term “mobile-friendly” means that a given web page is coded to automatically optimize its formatting to any screen size. The text is in a legible font size, pictures stay formatted so that the viewer will be able to read the content equally as easily on any screen size. So, what does this mean for your web pages and online properties? It means that all of the hard work you’ve put into SEO over the past several years will be useless if your pages aren’t mobile-friendly.
