Google’s Mobile Search Update



For a number of years now, Google has been encouraging webmasters to move towards mobile responsive website development, in accordance with growing mobile users and mobile search.

Last week, Google announced that some important changes were coming to their search algorithm to include more mobile-friendly results. They’ve stated that “…users will find it easier to get relevant, high-quality search results that are optimized for their devices.”

If you would like to know if your website is mobile friendly, you can use Google’s own Mobile-Friendly Test tool.

If you know that your website is mobile friendly, you can use your Webmaster Tools account to check for mobile usability issues across your site, using the Mobile Usability Report.
