“Mobilegeddon is not coming, it has already come.”

In a 2013 survey conducted by National Small Business Association it has been found that 4 out of 5 small businesses do not have mobile optimized website. This is a big number that could run havoc on all the small business who expects a portion of their sales through Google searches. Not to forget that once the new upgrade by Google is implemented they will lose a big chunk of their web traffic despite how good their SEO and keywords strategy is.

Google has released changes to its search algorithm on 21st of April 2015. Good news for all the mobile friendly websites as they will get boost on Google search engine ranking and bad news for the other non-optimized website as they will be punished with low ranking. We know it’s not pleasant news for small businesses who are already struggling keeping their website on top pages on Google.
