A sneak peek to Google tool to check your website’s mobile readinessJune 4, 2020
A sizable number of American business websites are still resisting a mobile-friendly makeover, despite Google’s repeat warnings of making a gradual shift to a mobile-friendly algorithm that would significantly alter the effects of the search engine results page (SERP) mechanism.
In November last year, Google issued a warning stating that it would start labeling websites in accordance with their mobile-friendliness. This initiative led to the display of “mobile-friendly” tag before URLs that have the unique capability of providing a pleasant user experience for smartphone and tablet users. If users are made to zoom or scroll horizontally for every piece of information on your website, it qualifies as mobile non-readiness on your part, and this will cost you a lot in the near future as it may lead to a total wipe-out of your website from search engine results page.
According to Search Engine Journal, Google’s warnings are an indication that Google intends to roll out a mobile-friendly algorithm update sooner than we all thought. Mobile-friendly websites are those that help users effortlessly find information from a web source. It’s all about easy finger-tapping and swipes.
