Google putting more emphasis mobile-friendly websites

The last time I spoke about this was when Google announced the Pigeon update but as of April 21st, Google is taking mobile a step further.

If you don’t have a mobile-friendly site, Google will most likely drop your rankings.  With 9 out of 10 home buyers relying on the Internet, why would you not want to be mobile friendly now a days is the question?  If you are not sure if your website is mobile friendly just drop a comment below and I will let you know.google-mobile

Google Webmaster Central says:

“Starting April 21, we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in our search results. Consequently, users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimized for their devices.”

If you do not have a mobile friendly real estate site, now is the time to start thinking of one.  If you would like more information on mobile friendly sites, click here.
