It might take more effort up front to get a responsive design in place, but the long-term benefits have become very evident with Google’s latest algorithm update.
Mount Laurel, NJ (PRWEB) October 03, 2013
In response to the evolving capabilities of tablets and smart phones, Google announced their latest algorithm change, which is being referred to as the Hummingbird update. The update is more interpretive of user intent than ever before. The search engine giant is hoping the latest changes will allow the search engine to provide the most precise results possible as users are asking more complex questions and expecting more defined answers from Google.
From a business perspective, the algorithm change makes it more important than ever for businesses to ensure both Google, and more importantly, their potential clients, can reach every page on their website through mobile devices. Director of Design and Development at WebiMax, Marc Cornish, explains the value of a mobile content strategy saying, “Every page of your website must be crawlable, indexable, and mobile-ready.”
WebiMax is making this possible for clients by creating websites with a responsive design, something Cornish believes is well worth the initial investment for clients looking to take their marketing efforts to the next level. “It might take more effort up front to get a responsive design in place, but the long-term benefits have become very evident with Google’s latest algorithm update.”
The thing that separates the Hummingbird update from previous updates to the Google algorithm, like Penguin and Panda, is the fact that it actually changes the way Google prioritizes what they display through their rankings. While the way the search engine scans through the Internet remains the same, Hummingbird provides Google the ability to interpret what exactly an individual user is looking for.
President and Founder of WebiMax, Ken Wisnefski, believes the Internet marketing efforts of businesses will only be as strong as their content strategies moving forward saying, “Google will be looking for a network of supporting content pages to interpret the most relevant results for their users. Only well-rounded marketing efforts will result in strong gains in the search engines moving forward.”
