Starting on April 21, 2015, Google’ latest update to their SEO algorithm will boost the significance of mobile friendly websites.
In our SEO predictions for 2015, we mentioned the rising importance of responsive web design and this update proves that to be true. The update will put responsive websites at the top of search results done on mobile devices. That means that users will now find it easier to get relevant search results that are optimized for mobile use.
Bloggers are saying that this update will be bigger than any Panda or Penguin update, so business owners and web designers need to make mobile friendliness a top priority for their sites.
Having a responsive web design boosts visibility in other ways as well because people are more likely to suggest a site that looks good on their device. Those who use a site that isn’t responsive believe that a business doesn’t care about their consumers.
