Did you know that from April 21st Google will start ranking mobile-friendly (responsive) websites higher in searches on phones or tablets.


What does this mean?

Mobile search makes up nearly 30% of all searches done on Google. From April 21st, searches from mobile devices will show websites that are mobile-friendly higher up the results than those which are not.

Will my website be affected?

It depends on two things:

  1. How much traffic on your website is mobile? If you have Google Analytics on your website you can quickly work this out
  2. Is your website mobile-friendly? Google has built a tool to test your website’s mobile compatability. Simple input your domain name and it will run a mobile test for you.

What if it is not mobile-friendly?

If the majority of your traffic to your website is from mobile searches and you don’t pass the Google mobile test then you can:

  • Ask your developer to start optimizing your website for mobile (here is aguide you can pass onto them)
  • Get Webafrica to redesign your website, for only R499 per month, in just two weeks
