Google Ranks Mobile-Friendly Websites Higher - April 21, 2015

As I'm sure you know by now, having a mobile-friendly website is essential to your online success.  Consumers expect to have an amazing experience on your website whether they are shopping at their desk, tablet or phone.  Google has been pushing agencies and website development companies for years to create "responsive designs" so websites look and work great on all screen sizes.   Well, on February 26th Google announced they would be ranking mobile-friendly websites higher in their search results starting on April 21, 2015:

While we certainly don't think your website will fall from Google's listings on April 22nd if your design is not responsive, it does appear Google will rank mobile search results higher for mobile-friendly sites.

If you would like Modern Retail to convert your website to a responsive design, please let us know by submitting a Support Request. We'll try our best to get it done before the April 21st deadline.  Thank you.
