Don’t worry, your new smartphone hasn’t finally become sentient (that we know of), but there are big changes ahead. Before you reach for your tinfoil hat, there are a few things you should know. Google tweaked its search algorithm on Tuesday. From now on, sites that aren’t mobile-friendly -- meaning ones that have text that's too small, take a long time to load, or are generally hard to navigate -- will see their search rankings plummet. If your site isn’t optimized for mobile, you’re about to experience a huge drop in search traffic. Not great, obviously, but here’s why it’s a very big deal: Approximately 86% of all U.S. smartphone users search via Google. There are 177 million websites covered by Google search. If you’re not optimized for those mobile users, you’re going to get lost in a very large crowd. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
