(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – ASEOHosting, a provider of premium SEO hosting, has released an advisory warning that site owners can expect to see reduced SEO ranking and search traffic during 2015 if they don’t implement mobile-friendly design on their site.
As of the middle of 2014, mobile web users in the US outnumbered those who access the web with a desktop machine or laptop. Mobile users expect that web sites will accommodate their choice of device. And search engines, many of whom now receive more users from mobile than from PCs, will preferentially rank mobile-friendly pages to offer their users the best possible experience. That means owners of sites that aren’t mobile-friendly can expect to see their search rankings and traffic take a substantial hit.
“At ASEOHosting, we are focused on providing high-performance SEO-optimized multiple-IP hosting,” commented ASEOHosting’s Vice President of Customer Relations, Daniel Page, “Our hosting can help clients follow SEO best practices, but, unless they also work to implement modern web design best practices, including providing a great mobile experience, they’re going to lose out on search ranking, traffic, and revenue.”
In recent days, Google emailed mobile usability warnings to thousands of site owners, with a detailed breakdown of the ways they offer poor mobile experiences. Along with each message came the warning: “These pages will not be seen as mobile-friendly by Google Search, and will therefore be displayed and ranked appropriately for smartphone users.”— a clear warning that Google intends to prioritize mobile-friendly sites in mobile search results.
Search Engine Land’s Barry Schwartz believes that the warning emails are an indication that Google is about to introduce an algorithm change that will further strengthen the SERP standing of mobile-friendly sites relative to sites that offer a poor experience to mobile users.
In 2015, when a majority of users access the Internet with mobile devices, businesses and publishers should make every effort to accommodate the shift in user behavior. Those that don’t put themselves in a poor position for future success.
