Go Mobile or Go Missing

Google and Mobile Search

Google has indicated that it is going to create a separate mobile index within months and this will be the main index of websites that the search engine uses to respond to searches. A separate desktop index will be maintained, one that will not be as up-to-date as the main (mobile) index.

What this means is that if your website does not work properly on mobile devices (i.e. it is not a responsive design or has not got a separate mobile version) it will not be in the mobile index. Hence it will not appear in the listings when people search on a mobile. Be warned - Just because your website displays on mobile devices it does not mean it is fully mobile responsive!

With over half of all internet searches now performed on a smartphone you can't afford to ignore responsive design for your website.

Website appearance

As mentioned above just because a website can be seen on a smartphone does not mean it is smartphone responsive in Googles eyes.


On the left is our website as it would appear on a phone if it were not responsive. On the right is the website as it actually appears on a smartphone with a fully mobile responsive design.
