Is Google really penalizing websites that are not mobile friendly?
Beginning April 21, 2015, Google will start ranking websites optimized for mobile users higher than sites it deems as unfriendly to mobile users. This means your search ranking could be at risk. I can help you mobilize your website and retain / improve your search rankings on Google.
What does this mean for you and your custom built website?
If your website is not responsive, and / or you do not have a mobile version of your website, your site will not be returned in organic search rankings as frequently, or in the same position, as web similar sites that are responsive, or have a mobile version.
What is the deal with a Mobile Website?
Google is responding to the exponential increase in mobile web searches. Mobile usage of the internet grew by 70% last year. For Google to remain effective, it must quickly take its users to sites that work effectively on any device.
How can you tell if you have a mobile website?
If you’re not sure if your website is responsive and friendly for mobile devices, shoot me an email or give me a call. Or you can also check out with google here https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/This is not the time to ignore your website. I have hundreds of satisfied clients with mobile websites in Lincoln City, Newport, and all over the Oregon Coast!
Make sure local Website designers has the ability to create Mobile re-directions and or different custom style sheets for your main website..
With the web always changing make sure you have confidence in your website designer to have the knowledge to keep up. Just recently i did a switch to a new hosting company. Five days of hell talking with those guys and trying new things “I” figured it out. The new web host witch i will leave nameless, some how cannot handle a hta access on the primary acct and only on the sub accts. (it was cpanel to!!!) Had to redo my whole custom website so it can work on mobile devices and or regular screens. But there servers are fast will go into that later.
Web designers that can only do WordPress / joombla
90 percent of the website designers on the market today can only handle wordpress and joomla! Both automatically change with the mobile device on hand. I do not mind either one. And can easily do either one in minutes! Out of the many free html editors out there, are not just easy and cheap to build. (usually a word press website should only cost around $240 dollars with hosting.) But they constantly lose page credit with google, yahoo, and or bing. This blog is done with wordpress and it took longer to type the text than to code this site.
Deweys Design changing for one sql host to another!
Another key point to make sure of your web designer, can he or she handle sql database tables and other aspects of the server. When i started the switch to the new webhost i already have a mobile website developed. Witch the mobile website was completely unique in its own way, but the new host could not handle it. Changing the style sheet of the old website seem to work with all the devices out there and was easy and more reliable on the web! The host was then able to handle it and deploy it for the web to enjoy.
Speed test on Deweys Design before and after the transfer.
Here are just a couple of screenshots of the new server diffidently seam to run quicker. Maybe cause the hta was gone and or nothing is on the host yet. But i did do videos of the transfer, and will try to upload them to youtube when i get caught up.. Thanks for swinging by, later![one_fourth_first] Screen screen of speed test on old host!
