I noticed a press release by the ICO today that is worth passing on to website owners. Particularly WordPress website owners.
It highlights the need for adequate security and good technical website development when storing clients information as not just “good practice” but as something that can become financially painful if you get it wrong.
Google made its latest major algorithm change on April 21st this year and will now be using mobile friendliness to rank websites shown in searches on mobile devices.
Although we have been advising our clients on this subject for a while now this is the first time that it has been officially imposed by Google and can really make a difference to your Google ranking. For some companies, this big change has seen a fall in search engine driven traffic to their website and ultimately their online enquiries.
This shift has cemented what we have always advised our clients about – when you have a website, it is mandatory to keep up with the latest technology and trends to make sure your online activities don’t affect your business adversely. Quite to the contrary, this major change in Google policy of displaying websites presents an opportunity to businesses that are willing to grasp it properly and use it to their advantage – getting more traffic from their mobile device friendly website.
