Is your website ready for Mobilegeddon?

What is Mobilegeddon I hear you ask?

Google have announced that in two months time they will change their terms and conditions for searches of keywords on their search engine. This change in terms affects website from the entire World Wide Web. Website that are not mobile compatible/friendly will significantly rank lower on Google searches.

Google has a three point list criteria in which they define as mobile friendly;

1) Buttons and links must not be placed close together.
2) The on screen text must not be too small to read.
3) The mobile viewport must be set.

Google have published a link which users can check whether their website fits into their criteria of being mobile friendly. I suggest all website owners do check their website using Google’s link;

If your website comes back adversely Google do provide a number of troubleshooting options to help correct your website’s compatibility.
