Is your website mobile friendly? Come April 21st you want it to be!

Thank you for this info +Ana Hoffman​!
Google's mobile friendly algorithm as a search ranking factor: what you need to know

♨  April 21 is the deadline Google set for the webmasters to get mobile ready.

"Take out your phone, look up your web site. See if there is a gray mobile friendly label in your description snippet. If it is in the search results, if you see it, that means that Google understands that your site is mobile friendly and if you don’t see it then we don’t see that your site is mobile friendly or your is not mobile friendly."

♨  Google's mobile friendly ranking algorithm will "take a few days to roll out, like maybe a week or so."

♨  The mobile friendly ranking algorithm will affect mobile searches in ALL languages worldwide and 'will have a significant impact in our search results.' according to Google

♨  It'll have a bigger impact on the search results than Penguin and Panda did.  

♨  It is a yes or no algorithm (either you are mobile friendly or not) - no 'degrees' of mobile friendliness.

♨  The mobile friendly ranking algorithm will not have any impact on the desktop search whatsoever.

♨  Responsive design works well, but it's not the only way to be mobile friendly.

♨  Your site must unblock CSS & javascript to pass mobile friendly test.

♨   All pages must be mobile friendly for your site to be considered mobile friendly.

Does your site pass the Mobile-Friendly Test?

Take it here:

Mobile Friendly algorithm RESOURCES:

Google's 4-part live series: Basics of a mobile website for SMBs
→ 1.
→ 2.
→ 3.
→ 4.

Google's Q&A session for mobile-friendly ranking change

Special thanks to +Barry Schwartz +Jennifer Slegg for keeping up with the changes!


I am planning on keeping this post continuously updated as mobile friendly algorithm news/notes/clarifications come out. 

If you have anything to add, let me know in comments.

I am also planning on offering Traffic Generation Café Wordpress theme, which is completely mobile responsive (among other great features), for sale in the near future.

So if your site runs on Wordpress and you need an easy solution to your site mobile unfriendliness, this might be it.

Stay tuned!

Oh my, it's Spring?!!!  Can't believe I didn't realize -- my daughters and I are normally counting the days! -- but we we have been taking care of a friend's 12 year old, blind, diabetic dog with pancreatitis for 2 weeks now and the days are blending together from exhaustion!  Although my #pittie  Ivy immediately took it upon herself to be his seeing eye dog, leading him EVERYWHERE and being his 24/7 nursemaid!  She breaks my heart with her sweetness every day!  PS: HAPPY SPRING, +Lori Thomas Dickert!  And thank you for the good news :)

Social Media Manager ~ Taking Social Media Off Your To-Do List
As a Social Media Manager, I help primarily small businesses and those in the real estate industry by setting up and managing their social media networks, blog, and online reputation. I help establish trust in their brand by promoting their message and building relationships. This involves creating and managing engaging content to expand the audience and develop referrals.

Visit my website (which is a work in progress):

Most small businesses don't have time to set up and run social networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, or a Blog (to name a few).

That's where I come in. As a Social Media Manager, I take care of all of your "Social" to give you the online presence you need in today's world. In other words, I take social media off your to-do list and allow you to do what you do best -- run your business.


-Facebook Pages

*Daily Postings* (M-F) to your social networks
Posting to your groups/communities

-Content Creation
-Syndication to Social Networks


Once the account(s) are customized, I provide daily monitoring to include:

-providing or creating content to engage followers and develop relationships/connections/referrals

-responding to incoming messages/comments/requests

-managing the brand’s reputation and online presence

-networking with connections between social media sites

Social Media has become a necessary component to any business. End your business day knowing you provided your expertise to your clients and customers while your social networks and blogging were managed for you.
