News Flash: Google will be changing the way their algorithms work on April 21st. This will affect the way our websites are displayed on mobile devices. I happily subscribe to Joan Stewart’s newsletters and this is where I discovered this important piece of information.
Joan is a.k.a. The Publicity Hound and offers a wealth of information in her newsletters to writer and authors about self publishing and marketing, as well, she keeps us up to date on the newest trends. She often works with J.F. Bookman from The Bookdesigner.com . They offer webinars where we can take advantage of great information and great deals on their promos.
What Joan has shared by pointing out this article linked below, is that google will be changing their ranking system, and websites that aren’t currently mobile friendly will not be recognized in the rankings. Yes, that means your site’s visibility may be hampered for those hand-held device readers of our blogs.
In the article below, written by news editor Barry Schwartz from Searchengineland.com, you will be able to click on a link to test your websites.
You know how the old saying goes . . . “An ounce of prevention . . .”
