Mobile Websites First
As a website owner seeking your claim to fame, you’ve known since the moment you chose to create a website that SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is a high priority, which is why now is a great time to tune in. SEO is a constantly evolving field and there are a lot of modifications in the way Google ranks websites. But the web design community was recently shaken by a true revolution called mobile-first index. This huge buzzword has been spreading in the past year and a half, and up until now, we only knew that it meant Google’s algorithms would rank websites – which includes your website – based on their mobile version, first and foremost.
Since March 2018, the mobile-first transformation has been happening for real. As a vast majority of your visitors are already seeing your website from their smartphone, you need to pay a great deal of attention to it. More specifically, you really need to provide your users with an equally fulfilling experience on smartphones and desktops when entering your site.
