Avoid Mobilegeddon!

Posted by: Kim Gilmore

Google is at it again. Their next algorithm update is April 21, 2015. It is rare that Google gives us warning of an algorithm change, so we wanted to warn you right now, THE END IS NEAR!

What does this mean for you? It means your website may lose rankings and traffic. Is your website mobile friendly enough for Google to avoid penalties and loss of rank?
Here is a quick way to know if you website is mobile friendly enough for the new Google algorithms:

1. Test your website using this: Google Mobile Friendly Test

2. Test your website using this: Google Speed Test

The Google Mobile Friendly test above only checks the individual page you key in. You must key in each page you want to test. Your main home page may pass this test and will not be impacted, but your secondary pages may not be in such good shape. Even if you have a stand alone mobile website, it may be impacted by this new Google update.

We strongly recommend you speak to a digital marketing specialist who understands the technology of your website as well as Google’s requirements before making any decisions on what elements need to be fixed. If you do not have a webmaster, or digital marketing specialist, you can contact us at 847-931-1511. We can save you from Mobilegeddon!

Gilmore Marketing Concepts, Inc. began in 1991 as a creative, energetic design house and advertising marketing firm. In 2014 we thought it would be easier to answer the phone as GMCI™ and rebranded with a nifty new logo and fun little ™ symbol. Ok, there was a little more thought process behind the name alteration than just answering the phone. It is all deep, analytical branding stuff that requires pages and pages of expertise. We have the whole report, if you truly want to know the whole story, call us. We will be glad to give you the full scoop, we love talking about brand psychology and the GMCI™ analysis report. We have grown into an international award winning boutique agency that creates custom marketing, design, print, video, web and viral marketing for corporate entities, not-for-profit companies, small businesses and municipal organizations.
