Rewarding sites that are optimised for mobile
These reasons alone should have you whipping out your mobile and searching to see how your site looks. But if that’s not enough motivation, Google will now reward you for having a responsive website that has been optimized for mobile use. Your ranking results are directly affected by the mobile friendliness of your web site. Mobile phones are now being used more to access the internet than to perform actual phone functions! Over 60% of mobile users access the internet on their phones.
Accelerated Mobile Loading
Google have further invested in improving the web on mobile devices by partnering with major publishers, developers and technology companies on the Accelerated Mobile Project. Increasing the load speed of pages on mobiles ensures a hugely improved user experience. Fresh, useful, well-optimised content is rapidly delivered to an ever-increasing mobile customer base.
