"Mobilegeddon" Is Coming April 21st

Last Update: March 24, 2015

Greetings WAers.

I just read a piece on Entrepreneur.com and apparently Google is planning a huge algorithm update that will go live on the 21st of April 2015.

It's designed to derank non-mobile responsive websites so if your blog is not mobile optimised, make sure you fix that because you WILL lose rankings.

I think 2015 will be the first year that mobile search surpasses searches done through desktop computers so this update is coming at the right time.

Personally I use a premium theme that is automatically "mobile friendly" but I think you can find a free one that will be mobile responsive, but I'm not sure.

Anyways, I just thought I'd let you know about this update so you can prepare for it. If you want to read the full article you can read the post here.

Hope all is well with you. Keep learning and keep earning.

Talk soon

I'm sure most of us that have a mobile responsive theme will see a big boost in rankings. Bring it on :) haha

There's a WP plugin that will make your site mobile friendly. This happened to me the other day when I received notification from Google that my site was not mobile friendly. You can check out the plugin here:

And to give credit where credit is due, Loes turned me onto this little nugget of info!
