Google – Recent Mobile Changes
Current changes in Google of recent are getting marketers talking about exactly what Google is going to do next, with their recent changes to Android phones and the constant mobile
responsive updates, as well as the recent Panda and impending Penguin refresh, the coming months are vital to businesses who rely on their website for sales.
Although not being mobile responsive isn’t going to completely sink your website yet, Google seems to be making every effort to make it as blatant as possible that not making the switch is going to set you back, and then some.
The recent mobile changes seen in detail in the search engine land blog show they’ve updated their search engine results page for mobiles, if you use the Google App on an Android phone, you’ll have already noticed these changes. Some are calling this a “test” for the future, with the potential to slowly move all mobile results to this style of page with cards allowing users to swipe through the cards based on up-to-date, more relevant results.
