BLOG: Is your website mobile-friendly?

Some are calling it "mobilegeddon" - the Google mobile-friendly algorithm change you need to know about.

BLOG: Is your website mobile-friendly?

Google has just launched a new mobile-friendly ranking algorithm which will give a boost to mobile friendly pages in Google’s mobile search results. This is important for organic mobile search results for your business. If your website is not mobile friendly, DON’T PANIC! And if you’re not sure, you can use the mobile friendly test here by simply typing in your website URL.

So you need to update your website to be mobile friendly?

Here at PracticePlus we provide fully responsive websites. Your website and email campaigns look great on mobile devices using best practice mobile layouts. That’s important not only for your business showing up in mobile search results, but also because mobile now accounts for over half of all email opens. And that trend is on the increase.

If you need a website update, your might also like to consider how you can use your website not only to showcase your brand, but also to generate more leads for your business. Ask yourself the following 5 questions: 

  1. Is your content written specifically for a website ‘skim’ read?
  2. Does your content showcase your value proposition? 
  3. Does your website stand out from your competitors ? 
  4. Is your website design eye catching? 
  5.  Do you have effective ‘call to actions’ on your Homepage?

Your website is a reflection of you, and you have about 7 seconds to make a great first impression. That’s true whether someone’s meeting you for the first time, or checking your responsive website out for the first time on mobile search results.

We can help!

Your mobile-friendly website should also be a lead generating tool for your business. We can help you get started with your ‘call to actions’ for capturing those qualified leads, including providing an eBook. An outdated website is a big turn-off - consider a regular Blog post, or take a look at our monthly content subscription for an easy monthly update that’s all taken care of.
