On April 21st Google rolled out their new ‘Mobile-Friendly’ update, which serves to prioritise web pages which are optimised to work on mobile devices.

This update effectively means that customers searching for a business on their mobile phone will find fewer sites that aren’t mobile-friendly. This may include your website, so you will be less likely to appear in search results and will possibly lose customers.

So, what should you do first?

Firstly, use Google’s Mobile-Friendly Testing Tool to confirm whether your website is optimised or not.
