Face Google Search's new algorythm : become mobile-friendly !

How to keep your SEO efficient after the launching of Google Search's new mobile-friendly algorythm ?

Why is it important for a brand to be mobile-friendly ?

According to Google, half of all searches globally come from mobile – yet many brands have failed to keep up with the shift in consumer behaviour. Mobile is becoming increasingly important for brands, with data from IMRG and Capgemini showing that mobile accounted for 40% of all UK online retail sales in Q4 last year. These figures include sales from apps as well as mobile sites.

Be mobile-friendly becomes unavoidable, as the recent news prove it. Google has just changed its search algorythm. The company will now boost sites that display well on mobile devices in mobile search results, and downgrade those that do not. A significant impact on rankings. Exeperts are talking about a « mobilegeddon » ! As Nick Fettiplate, SEO  expert at JellyFish, explains it in this article of Shona Gosh for Marketing Magazine, "Advertisers whose websites do not cater for mobile may start to see fluctuations in their organic performance as soon as April 21st, when the roll-out of the new algorithm begins."
