Mobile SEO for 2017
Does anybody still believe that mobile-friendly sites are not necessary or worth the effort? Believe it: “Mobile Armageddon” proved them wrong.
On April 21, 2015, Google rolled out an algorithm update that hurt the search rankings of non-mobile-friendly sites in mobile search results. In other words, if a website ranked first in Google for “Miami Beach Restaurant” was a dud when searching from your phone, then it wasn’t going to stay on top for long.
Mobile search rankings are more important than ever, and will only grow increasingly important over time. If your site is not optimized for mobile use or (perish the thought) not mobile accessible, you may as well not be on the web.
