It was pretty obvious that Google’s new mobile update would be massive, hence the reason why they decided to go public with their update. Many people just get a website made and forget about it. The fact is that your website should be viewed as a home or as an investment.
We caught up with Mibs, a local web design firm and got their views on how people should be taking this update. “It’s a change for the better. A lot of people were ranking that had crappy old websites. Something needed to be done and a search engine like Google had the power and authority to see to it that everybody should update their site or suffer the consequences.”
This is true! Part of the reason why business for web designers have skyrocketed recently is the threat Google had made about those websites that aren’t mobile friendly will get a reduction in web traffic. It is funny that once a business feels they are now at risk of losing business, how fast and easy they come to upgrades and such.
We get a behind the scenes look at this update and guess what? Many web design firms actually confirm that many websites just need tweaked instead of getting a whole new one done just to get back into Big G’s good graces. However, A web designer would be smart not to turn down a customer that wants to spend more money with them right? The leverage here is that most businesses don’t understand that to make a website mobile friendly is actually in the coding and not the overall design. Yes it is true that different themes and layouts provide added benefits, however in order to make a site mobile friendly, the site can be modified from the existing design.
So the never ending lack of knowledge for the industry doesn’t fail and the real winners in this update are those companies who can develop and create websites because they are seeing huge spikes in business solely because of this update!
