We’re seeing notifications from Google that mobile-first indexing has been enabled for some of our Customer websites. We’re letting our Customers know as the notices come in.
What does this mean?
Prior to now, Google’s ranking system used the desktop version of your website. From now on, your website will be ranked using its mobile-version.
Why is this important?
“[Google] continue[s] to encourage [websites] to make their content mobile-friendly. … This measure can help mobile-friendly content perform better for those who are searching on mobile.* ”
What should we do?
To ensure the best possible Google search engine ranking, please carefully look over your website using a smartphone. If you notice anything unusual, contact your website designer.
