You may take a look at your website and think it appears mobile friendly, but does Google see it that way? April 21st is approaching quicker than you think, and the date is important because it is the day that Google will start to penalize web pages that aren’t truly mobile friendly. By penalize, we mean Google will hit you with noticeable drops in rankings that will surely affect your business.
This is easy to avoid by updating your site at more than the surface level. Mobile friendly, or responsive web design is more than just changing the appearance of your website to look easy to use or navigate on mobile devices. Google’s program that decides whether you will be penalized or not needs to be able to read your site and determine it as mobile friendly. Imagine taking a test and knowing the answer to a question, but also knowing that your professor is looking for a different, more complete answer. You need to satisfy your professor to get the grade, just as you need to satisfy Google to keep your rankings.
