Visual Web Group, known for Blaine web design services, recently got word that Google will be making an algorithm update called “Mobilegeddon.” Here’s the deal: it’s important that your website is “mobile friendly” to keep current rankings because of this change, and thankfully Visual Web Group uses WordPress to build websites– and Google loves WordPress. So a website made by Visual Web Group is already designed with mobile in mind and still going to rank at the top of rankings. Nice.

So what did Google change and why did they do it? On April 21, 2015, Google updated their algorithm to emphasize mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal to help deliver higher-quality content via mobile searches. Industry professionals refer to this significant change as “Mobilegeddon” or the “Mobilepocalypse” because it’s a game changer.
