The Truth About Mobile Optimized Websites, and Mobilegeddon
Not sure what mobilegeddon is? To explain we need to go back a few years and look at a trend.
Over the past few years research has suggested that a vast amount of searches were made from mobile devices, specifically smart phones. It was predicted at that time that within a few years there would be more searches made on smart phones for mobile optimized websites than on desktop computers.
Last year that prediction came to pass. 2014 marked a graduation or a turning point for our young internet. The majority of search had gone mobile, and for better or worse websites would have to comply with the trend or get left behind.
The trend seems to be accelerating as of this year 2015, that number has now gone to 60% without any signs of slowing. As a response to this, Google and other search engines have modified their algorithm on how non-mobile friendly website are ranked when searched from a mobile device. They have basically punished sites that have not been optimized for mobile by kicking them further down the page, or in some cases a few pages.
