Google, You, and Mobile

Did you know that effective April 21, 2015, Google is making a big change to how your website will come up in search results?
According to Google "When it comes to search on mobile devices, users should get the most relevant and timely results, no matter if the information lives on mobile-friendly web pages or apps. As more people use mobile devices to access the internet, our algorithms have to adapt to these usage patterns. In the past, we've made updates to ensure a site is configured properly and viewable on modern devices. We've made it easier for users to find mobile-friendly web pages and we've introduced App Indexing to surface useful content from apps. Today, we're announcing two important changes to help users discover more mobile-friendly content."
The big change that is taking place is that the mobile friendliness of your site will be a ranking factor. What this means is that if your site is NOT mobile device friendly, your search placement will be affected, as well as results for non-mobile friendly sites not showing up on searches using mobile devices.
Don't be left in the non-mobile world. Upgrade your site today to desktop and mobile friendly. All websites at Stallion Online Services are mobile, responsive "right out of the box", with no special plugins, hacks, or secondary websites being needed.
