What is the Mobilgeddon Google Algorithm Update?
Google's Mobilgeddon algorithm update is the latest algorithm update meant to give Google searchers a better user experience. The Mobilgeddon update is specifically meant to target the user experience of mobile searchers. More and more searchers are using their phones, laptops, and tablets to access information via the internet, and Google, in turn, is releasing this update to make sure Google mobile searchers are getting the best experience possible.
What the Mobilgeddon update means for businesses
The Mobilgeddon update will penalize non-responsive websites, but only on mobile search results. Conventional search results will not be affected.
Also, unlike other Google updates, the Mobilgeddon update is a "real-time" update, meaning that websites that are not responsive by April 21 will be penalized, but only until the website is updated to be mobile-friendly. Once the website becomes mobile-friendly, Google will recrawl the website and remove any penalties right away. This makes the Mobilgeddon update different from other Google updates in the past, such as Hummingbird, Penguin, and Panda, which made it notoriously difficult to regain search engine rankings after a penalty.
