The New Year is upon us and although there is so much to talk about regarding the upcoming years we’ll definitely take a minute to recap some of the major events we’ve seen this year in the world of SEO.
The mobile update was one of the most notable updates for sending the message that reform has arrived for how we navigate the search engines. Google has made the statement that mobile is the priority so the future of website design is very clear: Design your websites for mobile devices.
The priority shift has changed Google’s system for ranking websites because they are definitely showing favour for sites that are made for mobile and provide the best user experience on mobile devices. Although penalties are not being awarded for non responsive websites, it looks like it will be a certainty in the near future.
