Is your website mobile ready?

Is Your Website Mobile Ready?

Google is changing and websites that aren’t mobile ready will begin to slip down the rankings!

What changes are Google making on April 21st?

Google are now stating that the mobile User experience will matter For SEO. While no-one knows the full list of changes that will occur on the 21st there is plenty of buzz about how web pages that are not mobile ready will be affected.

Mobile SEO Is Here

It is looking likely that organic desktop results will not be affected at this time as the new crawler will only be for mobiles.

Therefore, it looks like Google will prefer to serve websites on mobile devices with good quality content that are mobile ready, over those that have good quality content but are not mobile friendly!

From Google – “Starting April 21, we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in our search results. Consequently, users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimised for their devices,” said Google.”

Can Google Detect a Mobile Ready Website?

Yes, Google says they can detect when a website is responsive. However, Google won’t reward you for having a responsive site if it’s slow and doesn’t provide the content searchers are looking for. So, if you focus on providing a good user experience, you should be fine with these recent changes.

How do I know if my website is mobile ready?

Good question, but thankfully Google provide a free easy to use tool to check –

Leading SEO experts are warning small business owners without mobile or responsive websites are about to get hit with a major Google update on April 21 that could cost them 20 to 30% of their traffic.

SEO Derby - Link Rot

Link Rot

What is Link Rot?

Link rot (or linkrot), also known as link death, link breaking or reference rot, refers to the process by which hyperlinks on individual websites or the Internet in general point to web pages, servers or other resources that have become permanently unavailable.

The phrase also describes the effects of failing to update out-of-date web pages that clutter search engine results.

A link that does not work any more is called a broken link, dead link, or dangling link.

Why is it so important?

Link rot indicates that a site is not being looked after. Not only is it hugely frustrating for users, but Search Engines like the all powerful Google now take note to the number of broken links on a site.

The more broken links, the more a search engine believes the site is not being looked after. So broken links can now contribute to your google ranking!

What can you do?

Well, we love this free online tool brokenlinkcheck.com.

SO we remain very grateful to its creators and to all of those very bright folk who share these tools freely for us all to use.
