Mobile Friendly is now a Mobile Necessity

responsive web design


As of April 21, 2015 Google will be expanding its usage of mobile-friendly factors in its search algorithm. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in the Google search results.

Anyone who does not have a responsive site capable of serving multiple devices will be affected… but, here are the things they are looking for in particular:

  • A site that has software that is not common on mobile devices, like Flash
  • A site that uses text that is not readable without zooming
  • A site that doesn’t size content to the screen so users don’t have to scroll horizontally or zoom
  • A site that doesn’t place links far enough apart so that the correct one can be easily tapped
