Slides are wonderful things. I love waterslides – except the really steep ones of course – as you slide uncontrollably down and splash into the pool at the bottom in hysterics. It’s all a lot of fun.
However the next slide you, or at least your business, goes on may not be quite so pleasant.
Today is the day Google’s latest algorithm change kicks in and it could be a dramatic slide – for your business’ website at least. Is your website going to stay, and possibly climb, the Google rankings, or is it going to start sliding down the rankings?
There is one question to ask yourself?
Is your website mobile friendly? You can find out what Google thinks here.
If your website doesn’t past the test and there are plenty that won’t ( I’ve seen both major retailers and web developers’ websites whose websites don’t currently pass the test) what do you do?
Google’s developer tools can be found here but in summary they are actually very simple:
- Is it easy to use on a smartphone?
- Can a user find what they are looking for quickly and easily?
- Does the page re-arrange as you change browser window size (open your website in a normal desktop browser and change the size of that window. does it change?)
If you are at all worried about your website, give me a call. I have a number of web developers within my network. Let’s talk about what you are looking to achieve with your website and we can work out who is the right person to help you out.
