Is your mobile friendly website? You better hope so. After updating the algorithm in April 21, 2015, an event webmasters and web-developers called “Mobilegeddon”, the search engine giant, Google, will continue their support to make the web more mobile friendly.
Klemen Kloboves, Google’s Software Engineer, said on last Wednesday, March 16, 2016, “Today we’re announcing that beginning in May, we’ll start rolling out an update to mobile search results that increases the effect of the ranking signal to help our users find even more pages that are relevant and mobile-friendly.”
In other words, if you haven’t made your mobile-friendly website, Google might degrade your website search ranking and decrease your mobile organic traffic. However, Kloboves added, “... the intent of the search query is still a very strong signal — so even if a page with high quality content is not mobile-friendly, it could still rank well if it has great, relevant content.”
For your information, the world’s mobile internet users has increased to 70% compared to desktop users. The trend is expected to increase more in years to come and so are the Google policy. Answering these challenges and demands, WEBARQ has long created a more mobile-friendly website design, development, and platform its clients. The descriptions are as follows.
Your website will be developed using the latest HTML 5 technology with responsive feature that allows optimal viewing experience of the website in mobile version (320 pixel, 480 pixel, and 768 pixel) across a wide range of devices such as desktop, tablet, and smartphone. The website will be resized automatically depending the size of the browser.
