2015 Web Development Standards Update

by Lifted Logic

Google’s mobile-friendly algorithm is coming… Do you need mobile friendly web development in Kansas City?

Back in February, Google announced a fairly significant algorithm change regarding searches performed on mobile devices. In this announcement, Google stated:

“When it comes to search on mobile devices, users should get the most relevant and timely results, no matter if the information lives on mobile-friendly web pages or apps. As more people use mobile devices to access the internet, our algorithms have to adapt to these usage patterns.”

With over 50% of total web traffic coming from mobile devices, your business’ website could be severely affected soon if you have not received mobile friendly web development in Kansas City. At Lifted Logic, each of the custom, high quality websites we craft from scratch are made to be mobile friendly. It just makes sense.

Google is turning this new algorithm live on April 21, so contact Lifted Logic for mobile friendly web development in Kansas City today!

The two big changes that are coming on April 21 include:

  1. Mobile friendliness will now be a ranking signal. This means that if your website is not optimized for mobile devices, it will be nearly impossible for you to show up in the first page of the search results for over 50% of Google searches and your business may be negatively affected on a large scale.
  2. Google is going to begin using information from indexed apps as a factor in ranking for signed-in users who have the app installed.

Why you need mobile-friendly web development in Kansas City from Lifted Logic

With this algorithm update, Google is categorizing websites as “Mobile-Friendly” or “Not Mobile Friendly.” There will be no in-between and there are no degrees of mobile friendliness. Some indicators of mobile-unfriendliness include: small font sizes, tap targets/links to buttons being too close together, readable content, mobile user friendliness, and much more.

If you are unsure about the mobile-friendliness of your website, you can use Google’s mobile-friendly test tool here.

Don’t let your business get buried in millions of searches by this algorithm update! Contact Lifted Logic today for mobile friendly web development in Kansas City!
