Starting April 21, 2015, Google updates began to expand the use of mobile friendly sites as a ranking signal for search results. This ranking will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and have significant effect on search results. This a major signal to website owners and developers to make their websites mobile friendly. I have been hard at work updating client sites to make sure their WordPress sites are mobile friendly for all devices. Click on Google to see if your website is mobile friendly. I recommend WordPress site owners to update their sites to be responsive. Why responsive? A responsive site will adapt automatically to different screen sizes, mobile devices and tablets. You can also test your own site by using a convenient tool our my website.
