What ‘mobile first’ came to mean to website developers and SEO companies was that Google had recognized the fact that much of the world’s Internet users used their mobile devices more than their desktops and notebook computers. Often, these users didn’t even see the need to own these other traditional types of devices. Their mobile devices served all their needs.
As a result of this trend, Google felt the need to change their indexing policy from one that looked a desktop website page first, to one that looked at a mobile-friendly page first.
For web developers and SEO companies, this meant that they had to adjust their services to account for this change in the indexing protocols.Read More...
‘Indexing’ is a term used to describe the process that Google uses to look at a website and determine the rankings of the website. There are certain values given to each facet of every website like keywords, content and links. Each of these values, taken as a whole, results in the ranking of the website. In effect, Google was assigning a value to mobile-friendly websites and adding it into the mix.
By giving preference to any website that offered a mobile-friendly version, Google was in effect giving those websites a free upgrade in their rankings.
Needless to say, website owners who hadn’t gotten around to adding a mobile-friendly version to their existing website were panicking at the words ‘Mobile first’. They saw their rankings dropping precipitously in relation to their competitors, who had already added a mobile version to their own website.
Developers around the world saw both their revenues and workloads skyrocket. This was because of jittery website owners who were keen to add a mobile version to their website as quickly as possible to save their rankings.
Of course, SEO companies were likewise having to adjust their strategies to fit the new Google rules. They had to research and adjust to the need in order to address the other rules that Google came up with in adding mobile versions of a website into their indexing. They had to become mobile-first SEO companies.
For SEO companies, this meant that they generally had to adapt the mobile version of a website before adapting the desktop version. They had to switch their priorities.
These days, mobile versions of websites see more visits than desktop versions, and SEO companies see the value in this switching of the priorities. However, to SEO companies, the same rules apply. Mobile SEO has all of the same protocols as desktop SEO with the added necessity of ensuring that every change makes sense visually, as it’s being seen on a smaller screen.Read More...

A few years ago the executives at Google were on their way to work, and as they looked around at their fellow commuters, they noticed that everyone was using smartphones and mobile devices.
Arriving at work, they all huddled together and soon come out with the edict that would forever change the business of website development and SEO services. “Mobile First!” they proclaimed to much head-scratching from the rest of the Global Internet Community.
