    Mobile friendly website
    Mobile websites will trump outdated with Googlebot due to the new algorithm which Google will be rolling out globally over the next few weeks. What this means is, if you do not have a website configured for mobile devices, chances are your company will not be found in Google search. A page is eligible for the “mobile-friendly” label if it meets the following criteria as detected by Googlebot:

      • Avoids software that is not common on mobile devices, like Flash
      • Uses text that is readable without zooming
      • Sizes content to the screen so users don’t have to scroll horizontally or zoom
      • Places links far enough apart so that the correct one can be easily tapped

    Use this Google tool to see if you’re website is “mobile friendly.” Google’s new algorithm will make it easier for people to find information that they are searching. The “mobile-friendly” label that Google is adding , will bring up websites that are configured for mobile.

    The new Google algorithm makes mobile even more critical to your business – whether you’re blogging about your favorite sports team, working on the website for your community theater, or selling products to potential clients. Google wants to make sure visitors will have a good experience when they are searching from their mobile devices!

Don’t get caught in the trap of getting a mobile-formatted site (one that looks pretty on mobile) because it stripped away all useful functionality. Instead, remember to think of the end user in mind for your a mobile-friendly site (one that’s truly useful for mobile customers and optimized for customers most common tasks).
