Default Money-Making Note

At the end of this month (April 2015)....Big G is "demoting" websites whose website is NOT "Mobile-Ready"!

So.....what does this mean for us "Entroopeneers"? & more money! of my "students" checked out 100 biznesses in our local area that had websites BUT.....they were NOT "Mobilized".......went out on Monday..... walked into 5 of these biz.....found the manager.....showed what THEIR site looked like on a Mobile and.....told them that G will be pushing NON-Mobile Ready Sites to the BACKGROUND at the end of the month.

IF.....this biz would like to have her make their site "Mobile-Ready"....she can do it......just phone xxx.xxxx.

So.....out of 15 biz the past 3 days.....she got 12 replies FOR HELP!

WOW! Do YOU people REALIZE what this means?

Although.....some biz may think you're feeding them some Horse-Hockey AFTER Big G does their thing.....whoopee fizz.....Gold-Rush is ON! PROOF IS IN DA PUDDIN'!

Interesting. Just to tack on to this, here's the link and the first paragraph to an article:

On February 26, 2015 Google gave marketers incredible insight into changes they have planned for their search algorithms and the exact day they will go into effect. Specifically, they announced that on April 21, 2015 mobile search engine results pages (SERPs) will be impacted by the mobile-friendliness of a website.

According to what I've seen from Google so far this will be a much harder impact than both the Panda & Penguin.

I'm already getting messages from HostGator wanting me to purchase some "get mobile friendly" products they've come up with.

Most of my sites are WordPress, and easily made mobile friendly with plugins.

For anyone who isn't sure about the mobile friendliness of their sites here's the URL of Google's mobile friendly tester page:

Just plug in your domain.

Most cellphone user pay for data usage, so it's nasty to do a search on your cellphone and wind up clicking on some link you can't read. I expect mobile users and searches will be the target of Google's ranking that is displayed on the users device. That's good!

On the other-hand.... corporate researchers, investigative journalists, and a whole slew of users do searches from their desktop computers can't be ignored. If they were, then Google would start losing ground to Bing and Yahoo (who is getting more popular again since they replaced Google as the default search inside Firefox browsers) It stands to reason, Google isn't going to do this.

Let's forget about all of these people who are writing articles about this and using headlines to scare the heck out of everyone. Here is what Google said:
"Starting April 21, we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in our search results. Consequently, users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimized for their devices.
So.... on the desktop, they are NOT favoring MOBILE-FRIENDLY websites and this change only affects "mobile searches".
