Until recently, I’ve regarded websites that are mobile responsive as desirable, but not essential. Around last November, Google began adding the phrase “mobile-friendly” to search results for websites that are mobile responsive.
Last month Google announced that on April 21, they’ll update their search algorithm. It’s expected to reward mobile responsive websites with higher search result rankings.
I’ve been busy updating clients’ websites to make them mobile responsive. This has meant moving them to new platforms. I’ve moved small websites to Squarespace without too much pain, but I’ve learned that Squarespace doesn’t allow navigation menu nesting deeper than two levels, which disqualifies it for websites of more than a couple dozen pages. I’m working with a few mobile responsive themes on WordPress; it’s probably the route I’ll follow for my own website.
As usual, I’ve learned (again) that there is no single perfect answer. We just have to work around flaws and hide the blemishes.
