'Mobilegeddon' is coming this April, is your business ready?

Google have recently announced its new mobile algorithm update, dubbed as “mobilegeddon”, which is due to hit us on the 21st April. You can read the full announcement here http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.co.uk

Once again, many businesses who have used our services over the last two years will be reaping the benefits of our work and SEO strategy, as Google looks to expand its use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal, but what does this mean for the businesses whose website isn’t mobile friendly?

Don’t Panic!

Unlike previous major algorithm updates, where you would be put in a so-called ‘penalty box’ for not adhering to Googles rules, this will not be the case for this update. If your website lacks mobile friendly content you may drop off search results; however, all is not lost.

Google will allow businesses to have the opportunity to quickly make changes, and thus see improvements. This move will not come as a surprise to many businesses, as we’ve been creating responsive & mobile friendly websites for two years now. For those who remain on older designs & CMS systems, however, now is the time to upgrade your website.

Fortunately, Google has also given us a neat tool to test if your website will be classed as “mobile-friendly”. Simply enter the URL of the website you wish to test on this page Google Tools

If you wish to upgrade your website to a full mobile-friendly version, please get in touch with us by calling 01305 753769 or e-mail us at office@alacrify.co.uk

 

New Website For R-em Therapies

We have just launched a new website for Emma at R-EM Therapies. R-EM Therapies is a new client of Alacrify’s that we’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with. R-EM came to us needing a new website as the old site was starting to show its age. The old site also wasn’t responsive and was also unsecure which negatively impacted the site's search engine rankings as well as being hard for users to access on their mobiles and tablets.

New Website For Ecs Special Projects

We have just launched a new website for ECS Special Projects. This is another website of ours that we originally built many years ago. The old site stood the test of time and still performed very well in Google searches, but the time had come for the look and feel to be updated in line with more contemporary design approaches.

New Website For Volunteer Centre Dorset

We have just launched a new website for Volunteer Centre Dorset. We designed and built their original site but over the years more and more content had been added to the site as well as additional functionality. This made the old site, over time, more cluttered and harder to navigate because of the vast amount of information on there.

New Website For Dorchester Community Plays Association - Spinning The Moon

Dorchester Community Plays Association commissioned us to create a brand new website to support their 7th Community play, "Spinning The Moon", which will be performed in 2020.
