Mobile friendly sites now rank higher in Google

PrintMobile friendly sites now rank higher in Google… If you’re using Google to search from your phone or tablet, you’ll be seeing a change in the results. Beginning April 21, Google altered its mobile search algorithms to promote websites that are mobile-friendly.

This change affects every website within a Google search. Websites that have been optimized to be mobile-friendly, or are a responsive design, will take precedence over the websites that are not mobile-friendly. So if your website has always been ranked high in a Google search, but is not mobile friendly, it will be ranked lower to make room for mobile friendly websites.
