4 Reasons You Should be Concentrating on Mobile-First Indexes

Google’s new roll out – Mobile-First Index is grabbing the attention of techies everywhere! Google is going to be using their mobile version as their primary first index from the near future. This change has dawned on many active industry users, who are keen on cracking the algorithm down and refining themselves on the know-hows.

The search indexes and results that are rolled out by Google hold significant importance in the recognition of the company itself.

If you aren’t familiar with the how this could have an impact on your industry’s/company’s statistics, fret not! You have come to the right place. Learn the basic demands and implementations of Mobile-First Index and why it is relevant to your business.

Here are 4 reasons why you should be concentrating on Mobile-First Index, now.

1.How is this going to change anything?

The question on top of every SEO analysts’ and industry specialists’ mind is ‘How is this algorithm going to change things?’

Mobile-First Index means that Google will create and rank its search listings and statistics based on the mobile version of content that is given, even for listings shown to desktop users.

To get things going, let us take a vote on how many of you use Google on your smartphones.

If your vote to this question is ‘I do’, then, you are halfway through agreeing that this console is going to be rather a welcome-change.

2. Will this alter the Google rankings, prominently?

Basically, if the content in your mobile version isn’t the same as the desktop version, rankings will be affected. The content in the desktop pages need to have mobile equivalents for your Google rankings to remain largely unaltered.

Implementing smart information architecture, effective content strategy and enabling UX designs with the desktop content will reflect positively on the rankings.

3.Do the canonical tags need to be changed?

A canonical issue is when 301 redirects are inept. This in turn means that search engines potentially index your site under different URLs, making it look like a site of duplicated content.

Google has mentioned that these canonical tags need not be changed and can be maintained as is. Further, we could follow Google’s recommendations as listed on Google Webmasters Central Blog.

4.What are the other things that are influenced by this upcoming change?

If your mobile responsive site is not in shape, do not hurry with the mobile version and launch it with broken or incomplete version.

While adding structured files to a mobile site, adding large amounts of markup that isn’t relevant to the particular information need to be avoided.
