Google’s Page Speed Tool – and why you should use it.  When it comes to issues that affect search ranking, Google often keeps its cards close to its chest but sometimes it gives a strong hint about issues that it considers to be important. Recently it make a big play about mobile friendly websites and now comes the issue of page load time.

What are the BIG trends in web design this year?

What are the BIG trends in web design this year? Overall we feel this can be summed up by the phrase ‘less is more’. The trend setter brands are certainly stripping out lots of text from their websites and leading much more on big bold images or video.

This can be coupled with the rise in popularity of the website Pinterest where people ‘pin’ images that they want to share with others. This move to a more visual web plays on the fact that consumers interpret most of what they like through their eyes. Hence the more visually appealing you can make your product or service, the more likely you are to get customer engagement.

Indeed video and especially video headers are very much on a growth curve. Sites like Gestaltns.com are using a video slider on their home page to provide web visitors with an engaging and immediate insight into their film making skills. In fact any business can benefit from video headers that show quickly what the business is all about, in an interesting consumable manner.

21st April Google’s deadline for mobile sites

21st April Google’s deadline for mobile sites
Search giant Google is currently working on a major algorithm change that will revolutionize the way mobile friendliness is determined. Starting on April 21, this new algorithm will be rolled out worldwide, affecting mobile searches in all languages in all corners of the globe.

Zineb Ait Bahajji, a member of Google’s Webmaster Trends team, was quoted recently as saying that the new mobile-friendly algorithm change will have more of an impact on search rankings than either Panda or Penguin, two of the largest and most impactful search algorithm updates Google has ever launched.

What you need to do

Ensure the mobile version of your site is active and functional. Responsive designs are the most popular, but you can also have a separate hosted mobile version of your site. Google doesn’t have a preference, as long as mobile users’ experience isn’t interrupted.
Ensure Google’s mobile bots can crawl your site. If Google can’t see it, it may as well not even be there.
Check each individual page of your site on a mobile device to ensure navigability. Just because your home page is mobile friendly doesn’t mean the rest of your site is.
