Google’s Algorithum Change – Two Weeks later
Google Mobile-Friendly Test UPDATE

Mobile

geddon-2015.  Much like the news hype about the next huge winter storm, the hype was worse than the actually effect.  No fireballs from the sky and your site has not been banished to the nether regions.

Yes, Google changed it’s search algorithm on April 21st.  If your site is mobile optimized all is good.  If not, the Search Engine Optimization is being affected.  But it can be corrected.  Fear not, once you pass the test, you will be back in Google’s good graces. 
Test your site by going to the Google Mobile-Friendly test on MichaelTritthart.com
.

TIP – KW agents – you can have your eAgentc site pass the test by watching and following the steps in my Google Mobile Friendly video.

Here are some things to keep in mind as we all move into this new territory.

  • Common Sense  Use it.  Whenever there is a major change the jackals move in to take advantage.  I have seen multiple ads, heard radio spots promoting mobile enhanced sites.  Many of which start at $4,000-5,000 a site.  That is insane.
  • Know What You Get  Don’t just fall for a pretty home page that is mobile responsive.  Make sure your site has content and lead capture throughout.
  • Many Mobile Options Abound  WordPress.org, WebsiteBox.com and Market Leader sites for all agents.  KW agents can get their eAgentc sites enhanced as well.

Before deciding what path to take, contact my design team and we will offer you a free consult to help you decide; whether you use our design team or not.  However, you will see that our design options/content and pricing will be hard to beat.
