Why Mobilegeddon Started Hurting Non Mobile Sites Years Ago

What’s Worse?

Someone not being to find your website, or someone finding your website and the usability being so poor they leave?

This is what strikes me about the whole Mobilegeddon discussion.

It is a problem when people doing internet searches land on system that aren’t mobile friendly.

What Google is doing today is a piece of fixing that problem. Since non mobile sites are not useful to people on mobile devices, would it not be best to filter non mobile sites out of the search results for searches conducted on mobile devices?

Is Google not doing us all a favor by doing this?

And by “all” I truly mean all.

We all know a high bounce rate is bad for SEO. Mobile users who come to non mobile sites don’t linger. This increases the bounce rate. So even the site owners suffer when this happens.

If Your Website is Not Mobile Friendly

Complaining that Google is “doing it to you again” is both not true, and not productive.

If people search on mobile phones for what you provide, you’ve been losing out as long as they’ve been doing searches on mobile phones.

You just didn’t know it.

The good news about Mobilegeddon is now you know.

The next question is, are you going to do anything about it?
