Well, it is official. Google has announced mobile search results are going to be determined by mobile friendly websites. You can read much more here: http://wojdylosocialmedia.com/google-updates-search-algorithm-mobile-friendly-websites-april-2015/
If you have a business website that is not mobile friendly there is a good chance you are going to lose search traffic. Rather than taking this chance it is better to be proactive starting today. If you want to update your website to make 100% certain it is mobile friendly reach out to me at email@example.com.
I have many ways in which you can optimize your website to rank better in mobile search and desktop search. SEO continues to change as we move forward in the mobile era. Are you prepared?

Arming Students for a World of Incomprehensible Input
Presenter: Sara‐Elizabeth A. Cottrell, Independent Consultant, Louisville, KY
It is known that comprehensible input leads to language acquisition, but the fact is, outside the classroom (and sometimes inside!) the world is full of incomprehensible input. This session talks about how to give students their most effective weapon in that world: circumlocution, the strategy of explaining concepts for which you don’t have a word. It will take a research‐based approach (and play Taboo!) to discuss why and how to teach circumlocution early and often.
Audience: MS/JHS, HS, College/University
After ten years of teaching Spanish, she currently blogs at Musicuentos.com and work with school districts, schools, teachers, and curriculum companies to develop real proficiency in world language students. She is a storytelling, textbook-free teacher who loves integrating pop music and technology. “Off the field,” she enjoys her family: her webmaster husband and their three bilingual littles, reading, getting outdoors, and exploring her faith. Contact her at email@example.com.
