Is your mobile website just a stripped-down version of your desktop site?
Then this is a must-read for you.
For the last few years, marketers and web designers (us included) have emphasized how important it is to consider the mobile design of a website. Data shows that with each passing year, more folks use their mobile devices to surf the web than any other platform.
But now, with its latest announcement, Google is stepping up the ante.
Earlier this month (October, 2016), Google announced that it will begin to create a separate mobile index within a few months, that will serve as the primary index that the search engine will use.
In other words, Google has decided to start indexing search results for mobile separately from desktop in order to offer mobile users better and fresher content.
The standard desktop index will remain active, but it won’t be as updated nearly as frequently as its mobile counterpart.
So, what’s this mean for your website?
Yesterday, assorted news websites and Twitter accounts stated that the website jebbush.com was being redirected to Donald Trump’s current campaign website. The reports originally stated that Jeb Bush’s camp let the domain expire and someone purchased it from underneath him, but later reports discovered that the website is unaffiliated with Bush’s campaign, and the redirect to Trump’s site was working in late 2015.
In light of this recent story, we here at the 5 Stones Media Web Administration Department would like to take this time to remind you to make sure you own – and renew - your domain names!
