Not so long ago, the only way of accessing the internet was via a desktop computer. New technology means that this is no longer the case.
Increasingly we are seeing more people accessing websites with their smart phone or tablet rather than their PC.
With this in mind Google has extended their ‘mobile first’ policy with the roll out of the ‘Mobile Friendly’ badge.
Mobile Friendly Tag
Now, websites that are optimised for viewing on mobile devices will have the ‘Mobile Friendly’ badge next to their search result. Google are keen to push website owners to make their website mobile friendly and as such it is easy to speculate that non-mobile friendly sites will soon be penalized in search results.
So what can you do?
First of all you need to check whether your website is mobile friendly or not. Luckily Google has a handy and free Mobile Friendly Test. Simply input your website address and Google will let you know how mobile friendly your website is.
