#Mobilegeddon: Are YOU Ready For Google’s Biggest Update Ever?
On April 21st 2015, the face of Google is changing..forever. Google’s most wide-reaching and powerful algorithm update will arrive and from this day forward, more than half of Australia’s biggest companies could disappear from Google on mobile devices. Google has announced it will be prioritising businesses that have “mobile-friendly” websites when people search on their smartphones or tablets.
2 out of 3 Aussie websites aren’t ready for this algorithm change and are going to be hit in a big way. Google is simply saying, enough is enough. With over 50% of all search traffic coming from mobile devices, they’re sick and tired of websites not making the move to mobile-friendly designs.
This is hands-down going to change the face of the first page search results in every industry from painters and plumbers to leading online retailers and brands. Google themselves have labelled this update Mobilegeddon and with good reason. Depending on when Mobilegeddon actually rolls out completely in Australia (Google will be rolling it out over the next few weeks globally starting the 21st, April 2015) you’ll overnight see a complete reset of all the first page mobile search results with previously strong competitors and top ranking websites just disappearing from the first pages of Google when searching from a mobile device. For most businesses, no rankings means no traffic which means no enquiries and no sales. Literally overnight….
