Are You Ready For Google's 'Mobilegeddon' On April 21, 2015?

This week Google announced its upcoming launch date of April 21, 2015, for their new, mobile-friendly algorithm change, referred to as 'Mobilegeddon'. This is the most significant impact on search rankings since Penguin in 2012, cracking down on web spam, and Panda in 2011, pertaining to thin content.

Google is now saying that if every page of your website is not mobile-friendly by April 21st, it will significantly impact your search optimization. This makes sense since more than half of all searches are from a mobile device. Google's Webmaster Trend Team is predicting that this algorithm change may impact up to 40% of the websites on the internet.

The most popular website design, and preferred by the search engines, is Responsive, which was launched in late 2014. This website design automatically uploads to fit the user's device, whether its mobile, tablet or desktop. It allows for quick upload and size adjustment of content and graphic elements for easy navigation.

How do you know if your website is mobile friendly? Check it out by going to https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly and enter your URL. You will get an immediate evaluation of your website's mobile-friendliness. If your website fails this test, then contact your webmaster or Barbara Goldstein at Media Power Advertising at 704-567-1000 ext 103 or email bg@mediapoweradvertising.com.

  • Frustrated with the challenge of finding and keeping qualified media buyers, this recognized clothier hired Media Power Advertising to get them through a seasonal crunch. But after seeing how MPA could stretch a budget and deliver cost-effective broadcast buys, they decided to "leave the buying to us." MPA now handles all radio, TV and cable in four states. In these days of staff reductions and hiring freezes Outsourcing to Media Power Advertising can solve workload problems AND contribute to the bottom line. This reduces client salaries, benefits, employee taxes and office operating costs.

    I never worry about how the work will get done anymore. One call gets the MPA team negotiating our next buy. Even last minute sales are covered without the hassle of staff overtime, worrying about someone being out sick or on vacation. I don't know why we didn't outsource a long time ago.
