The Countdown Begins to Google’s New “Mobile Ready” Algorithm
Will your site be rewarded?
On April 21, 2015 Google’s new ranking algorithm will take effect. The new algorithm will affect your current search result page position in a big way. As of April 21st all sites must be mobile friendly in order to keep their spot on Google’s search result pages. If your site does not pass the mobile friendly test, your spot on Google will be greatly affected and possibly not be available on a mobile device. This algorithm will take about a week to be completed.
