Will Small Business owners lose out in the race for being found online?
The recent ‘mobilegeddon’ google updates has triggered large activity amongst some small businesses owners to act on their current website and by making it mobile-friendly will become more visible to online customers.
However, recent studies have shown that there are a large number of small businesses that have yet to join their competitors and the race to a better online presence.
The new google update works by rewarding businesses websites with more prominent positions in search results but only if they have optimised their website for mobile devices, for those that are still unsure of what “responsive website” or “mobile-friendly” website is, basically it means your website recognises the device it is being displayed on and responds to it by adapting itself to view more easily and friendly on that device, something that must be built into the website itself.
Those without mobile-friendly websites face a threat of being less visible online.
The google algorithm change is in response to how people search and shop online today. The search engine giant estimates that around half the online searches for UK businesses are done using a mobile device.
