In a historic, game-changing move, Google announced that on April 21st they will release a new version of their algorithm that weighs mobile-friendliness more heavily as a ranking factor. Google has always hinted the importance of mobile-friendliness for organic ranking, but now they are using the phrase “significant impact in our search results” with an exact date, so responsive web design becomes urgent and imperative; we can expect complying sites to see a dramatic boost in organic rankings, especially on mobile search results but also for desktop queries.
Besides using your Webmaster Tools account to review mobile issues across your website, Google has a neat online tool to test if your page has a mobile-friendly design.
Did you pass the test? If not, we can help!
