Why your website’s not on Google

Why your website’s not on Google

mobile-friendly Used to be in the golden olden days that potential clients could find you on Google. One reason was because if you had a website at all, you were doing better than most folks in your industry, and so the competition wasn’t as big.

Another reason was that Google allowed your site to come up if it matched the customer’s query, but now that’s not always true.

Just about a year and a half ago everything changed at Google. They stopped sending any people to your site from a mobile if your site wasn’t mobile ready. That means that over 65% of folks searching for you on Google won’t be able to find you AT ALL… not on page one, not on page 51, or 251, unless you’ve made the proper mobile-friendly revisions on your site… like making sure they can read it on a vertical phone or tablet.

Google is sneaky that way. They can tell what kind of device is being used by their customer and they only want to send those customers to the best sites for their query. Makes sense they don’t want to send their mobile customers to a site that doesn’t work well on a mobile.

I am actually surprised to say that over 30% of the websites I see on a regular basis from folks coming to me for help are not mobile friendly. Now that you know that over 65% of folks can’t even find you on Google at all, I hope you consider a change.
