Google’s Mobile Friendly Update

Chances are, if you’re a business with a website, you’ve thought long and hard about how it would look on a laptop or desktop computer. If you’re wise, your site is mobile-friendly as well… But did you know that Google is now actually penalizing websites that don’t have mobile-legible content if you search using a mobile device?

What does this mean in English? Imagine a customer standing a block from your place of business, looking up businesses of your type on Google and having a competitor across town, (or anywhere in the world, for that matter,) show up first, for no reason other than you don’t have mobile-friendly content on your site. That’s exactly what would happen in this scenario. Time for an update!
