The need to design a website that’s fully ‘Mobile Friendly’ has never been so important. Google have announced that from 21 April 2015 “mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in our search results. Consequently, users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimised for their devices.” This article in Forbes on ‘Mobile Friendliness is good reading for all website administrators, designers and developers. Basically, from this date if you search in Google on any smartphone or tablet you are less likely to get results from a site that is not Mobile-Friendly (Responsive). We all know how frustrating it is to visit a site on a mobile device and have content missing or navigation off screen, you leave never to return! – responsive design automatically resizes web pages to fit different screen sizes on smartphones up to wide-screen monitors. If you are one of those who have been putting off improving the mobile usability of your site, now’s the time to do it. Google has clearly stated this change will be significant and it’s clear that now is the time to make changes to increase the mobile-usability to a ‘Responsive’ site.
