Earlier this year Google announced an update to their search engine algorithm that will reward mobile-friendly sites with a higher search ranking. This algorithm update is closing in now with the update scheduled for April 21st.
This move by Google to reward mobile responsive design sites compel companies to start developing their websites to be mobile-friendly. The recent trends in online marketing have shown that the amount of consumers that are using their mobiles to research and purchase products has increased dramatically.
Google also explained that the new algorithm will expand its use of ‘mobile-friendliness’ as a ranking signal. As a result of this, Google search engine users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimised for their device.
What Is Mobile Responsive Design?
Responsive web design allows a site’s layout to change as the screen size being used to view that site changes. A wide screen display can receive a site design with multiple columns of content while a small screen can have that same content presented in a single column with text and links that are appropriately sized to be read and used on that smaller display.
