What is a mobile friendly device?
A mobile device is a portable computing device that has an internet connection, such as smartphones, iPhones, tablets, e-readers, iPads and laptops etc., that is used to view internet websites. Mobile devices are also referred to as “Small Devices”.
What is Responsive Ready?
Responsive Ready is a slang term for a website design that is built to come up (to display) on small mobile device viewing screens.
Why is it important to have a “Mobile Friendly Website or Responsive Ready Website Design”?
As of this writing Mobile Internet Ready Devices make up just over half of all internet connection devices and almost half of all Google searches are now done using the so called “Mobile Devices” or “Small Devices”
OK – what’s the big deal with Mobile Devices and Website SEO Search Results? The big deal is that in the year 2015 Google started to give priority to Mobile Friendly Websites and Responsive Ready Website Designs for Google search results for mobile devices such as smartphones, iPhones, tablets, e-readers, iPads and laptops. Yes that’s right, Google has figured out a way to tell the difference between an old style regular website design and a the new mobile responsive or mobile friendly website designs.
Simply put; your old style website will be given a lower importance relative value on mobile devices than a mobile friendly ready website. This is not a big deal for most search categories currently, but as more new websites come out as mobile friendly ready than you will see your website slowly move down to bottom of the Google search results web page. The sooner you establish a mobile presence the more likely you will be able to maintain a high search ranking on mobile devices.
UPDATE 2016 – Mobile internet friendly website and responsive ready websites are NOT given the same priority as the older traditional design websites on LARGE internet viewing devices such MACs and PCs. All Mobile Friendly / Responsive Websites are now given TOP priority over non-responsive websites on ALL devices.
