Google has recently published a number of directives that make it very clear that your website should be optimized for mobile users. In fact, they have also made it clear that if you do not have your website optimized for mobile users, you’re going to soon begin paying some very stiff penalties.
Sites That Aren’t Optimized For Mobile Users Will Suffer
Google has made it plain that websites that are not optimized for mobile users are going to suffer some pretty serious penalties. The most important and damaging of these penalties will likely be demotion in the search rankings. This will very likely be the case if your website does not comply with Google’s recently published Mobile Optimization Guidelines.
How You Will Be Penalized If You Aren’t Optimized For Mobile Users
Google has recently announced that it expects website users to incorporate a mobile user friendly responsive design. However, the problem here is that most websites that use these responsive designs tend to be hampered by very slow load times. A website that loads too slowly will naturally be one that users tend to avoid. This avoidance will have negative consequences on your place in the search rankings.
What Can You Do To Get Your Website Optimizes For Mobile Users?
However, there are a few things you can do to speed up your load time and get your website fully optimized for mobile users.
- Reduce the number of requests, as well as the total amount of data transferred. This will streamline your site for mobile users.
