Google have reported they will be bringing out a new update on the 21st April. This will be a big update according to the SMX team, rivalling the size of panda and penguin and in fact making them look like small tweaks.
It’s a nerve-racking time for SEOs but one that we can either choose to embrace or back down from. I’m taking on the former and embracing this Google update with open arms.
Google hasn’t confirmed anything yet, but its sure to be a completely new crawler for mobile data, including crawling apps, 1 page mobile friendly sites and more. As I mentioned its still not sure what can be done as well its not the 21st April yet, but there are 2 options I would recommend:
1.) Get your site responsive – This involves designing a mobile friendly website. There are services such as this one that you can get for your site to get this done. This is the option I would recommend as responsive sites improve user experience and UX is now an official Google ranking factor, so I mean this is the option to go with.
2.) M.Site – Create a mobile friendly website that acts as a mini landing page when someone visits your site from a mobile device. This is another great option and does act as a mobile friendly option.
Also if you haven’t already checked, you should head over to the google mobile tool and check to see whether you have a mobile friendly site already or not. Looks like I have some work to do!
Thanks for reading as always.
On a personal update I’m involved with a new website, in a different niche to SEO called elite forex trading, so I might be posting a bit less frequently.
