  • Timing is Key: Google’s New Tool

     June 15, 2016

    While technology continues to advance, Google has recently released a tool for businesses to see how well websites work across a variety of platforms (desktop, mobile devices, etc). This really isn’t surprising considering Google changed its algorithm in 2015 to give mobile-friendly websites more stature in search rankings.  People spend more time searching on their mobile devices instead of their computers, which pushes companies to make their websites more mobile-friendly. According to KPCB mobile technology trends by Mary Meeker, 51% of users view content through a mobile device compared to 42% on desktop.  The bottom line is this: if your website is mobile friendly, you’ve taken an important first step.  However, if your website’s load time isn’t optimized – for mobile devices or on desktop – your customers aren’t going to stick around on your website for long.
