Google – Mobile – Web Search Changes

What does change mean for your web traffic?

Google + Mobile – What is the deal?

Google may have dropped your site from mobile search if your site does not offer a mobile platform – but it may not change your web traffic results. Unresponsive sites have a 95%+ bounce rate on mobile so this is a logical change, designed to improve user experience – not punish you.

50% of all search today is mobile or tablet.

If your site is built in Flash, Front Page, Cold Fusion, Wix, Weebly or Joomla, you need to take steps to mobilize your site. Most “Site Builder” tools are also not responsive. Your future depends on people being able to find your business.

How to fix? Getting back into Google Mobile Search:

If your site is WordPress but not responsive: add a mobile plugin.
There are free plugins and paid plugins.
We can install a paid licensed plug in and build out your mobile site for $110.

What if your site is in old technology?
Blow it up and rebuild – Most sites cost $495-$895 to rebuild into responsive WordPress design.

What if you love your old tech site?
Add a .mobi (mobile site) – Mobile sites in WordPress are a quick fix to add to any existing site platform – Simple Mobile sites from $295. Your mobile & tablet users will be delivered to your mobile site and Google will list you again – eventually you can move your site to wordpress.
