Is Your Website Mobile-Friendly?
Google made an announcement on the 21st April that they are going to be giving preference to websites that are mobile friendly. This is really important as around 60% of search traffic is now generated by mobile devices (ComScore, 2014).
In this video I give you additional information about the update and where you can test to see if your website is mobile-friendly.
Here are the links I referred to in the video:
