#Mobilegeddon By now the Google mobile update which has been dubbed “Mobilegeddon” should be well and truly being rolled out… or is it? I tweeted out this morning to see if anybody was reporting changes in the mobile rankings, but nobody came back to me, not one person! As you can see, the general feeling is that it will take a few days to roll out, rather like the other Google updates of the past. I have always seen that they usually start in the US then slowly filter over to the UK and Europe over a period of a few days. I am certainly not seeing anything in regards to rankings shifts for my clients. So What Is This Mobilegeddon Anyway? “Mobilegeddon” is the name given to the mobile search update which is being rolled out by Google today (21st April 2015). They are apparently going to be rewarding websites which are “mobile friendly” judged by Google’s own “mobile friendly test” tool, example below. (if you fail this test, have a read of my mobile web design services page). Why Should You Be Concerned? If you value your mobile website traffic then you should be concerned if your site doesn’t pass the mobile friendly test above. Mobile traffic is growing each year, smart phones and tablets are growing in popularity and are looking like taking a huge chunk of search traffic away from desktop machines in the coming years. Google have known this for years and have been banging the drum for developing a “mobile friendly” website through out that time. For certain businesses it is vital that their...Learn More
New Office – 2015 This week we have moved into our new office space and as a result I have become a little sentimental, looking back on where it all started and where I have come. I have worked in the web industry since 1999, for various different agencies and “in house”, in 2012 I officially made the step into full time “Freelance”. I had taken the leap and started my own business “officially”, The Web Design Group was born. It was originally set up to be a group of like minded freelancers to share work with each other, the Ltd company was originally founded by myself and another gentleman I shall refer to as C.R. We both worked for a large agency at the time, and were in discussions on making a go of our own freelance careers. My first office! My first office was in my garage at home, it seems to be quite common in the freelance world to have a home office. I started to convert my garage myself… Not very big or pretty, there were two desks in it and not a lot of room for much else. Within 2 months I couldn’t stand it any longer!! Moving Out The time had come where I wasn’t getting the most out of my working day, I was watching more TV than working, something had to change. I needed to capture that sense of “going to work” and getting out the house. I started looking for a small office in Ilkeston. I soon found that The Erewash Partnership ran a managed office building called Castledine House. I moved...Learn More
Are Leased Lines Relevant For SEO? If you’re involved in the world of SEO or thinking of setting up an SEO campaign for your business, then it’s worth looking into the world of leased lines. With an ever increasing number of us taking the basic issue of connectivity for granted, it’s important to consider how to safeguard your connection. There is little point in lining up all the other ducks if the basic issue of potential clients being unable to access target sites hasn’t been addressed. Badly designed and slow websites can be part of the problem and downtime is surprisingly still an issue in some cases. That’s why leased lines are relevant for anyone who is serious about SEO. Ensuring that your website downtime is at a minimum is vital when it comes to setting up a successful SEO campaign. The world is accessing the web A poll for the BBC World Service found that almost four in five people around the world believe that access to the internet is a fundamental right and with almost half the global population now regularly going online, this is becoming a reality. Whether it is ‘on the go’ via 4G or older technologies, or through ever increasing speeds offered by broadband and fibre optic connections, consumers are becoming used to thinking of online access as their first port of call. This is great news for anyone involved in SEO or digital marketing but it can present challenges too. Let’s talk stability Making sure that a client understands the need for a stable internet presence can come down to a nuts and...Learn More
