Is your website mobile ready?  Google reports more users are surfing the web with mobile devices.  In many areas the use of smartphones has surpassed the use of desktop computers, therefore having your website mobile ready has become critical.  If the website is not mobile ready then it is difficult to read on the smartphone.  User has to pinch and zoom to read the content.  This can be very frustrating for the user.  Not having a website that works well on phones, tablets and desktops is like saying goodbye to sales.

Google mobile-first indexing

Google has changed the way it indexes sites, that is they are indexing the mobile sites before they are indexing the desktop versions.   If you have 2 different sites, one for mobile and another for desktop then Google will index your mobile site before it indexes the desktop version.  Therefore, it is best to have 1 version of your site and make it responsive.  Responsive sites provide an optimal viewing experience across a wide range of devices from desktop computer monitors to mobile devices.
