Probably now the most important reason why you need a mobile friendly website.
Here’s why – Google: “Starting April 21st, we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal”
What does this mean exactly?
Well… it means that if your website, or any website for that matter, is NOT mobile friendly it will almost certainly have a lower search engine rank than a mobile friendly website!
The use of mobile devices to access the internet is growing at a rapid rate (mobile usage now accounts for over 50% of internet use, yes you read that right – over 50%!) and Google know this only too well. And as part of their never ending commitment to improve their search experience for users a non mobile friendly website will drop rankings like a brick in water!
