You may be aware that Google has announced that it will be "expanding the use of 'mobile friendliness' as a ranking signal" from April 21st 2015, with the worldwide update expected to have a "significant impact" on search results. Sites that are considered to be mobile friendly will have a grey label next to their site description in a search like this:

google mobile friendly ranking

According to Google there are more than 200 different factors that determine site rankings, of which mobile friendliness is one. So if your site is not seen by Google as mobile-friendly, not only will you be missing out on potential business from mobile users, but you may also see a drop in your overall search rankings.

Some key areas Google will be looking at are:

• Page avoids software that is not common on mobile devices, such as Flash,

• Page uses text that is readable without zooming,

• Page sizes content to the screen so users don't have to scroll horizontally or zoom,

• Page places links far enough apart so that the correct one can be easily tapped.
