Starting This July, Google Will Use Mobile-First Indexing for All New Sites
Building a site takes time. A lot of components go into a site, and they can end up going through several iterations before things look and feel just right.
If you’re on the verge of launching your site or you’re in the market for one, you need to make sure that the mobile version of your site is up to snuff. Google has stated that starting July 1st, all new sites unknown to Google Search will be indexed using mobile-first indexing.
What Does This Mean for My Site?
We’ve gone over how Google’s shift to mobile-first indexing directly affects your site and rankings in a previous blog post. To recap, earlier this year, Google changed the way it gathers, analyzes, and stores the information on sites and how it uses that information to rank your site. If your mobile site is lacking, your rankings will suffer.
While this update was rolled out last year, all of the sites known to Google have not been transitioned yet. Google is still evaluating some sites to see if they are ready for the transition. Thankfully, Google will notify you when your site has been transitioned to mobile-first indexing, so be sure to keep an eye on your Google Search Console for any messages stating such.
But if you’re planning on launching a new site after July 1st, you’re going to want to make sure that your mobile site runs smoothly, loads quickly, and looks great on mobile devices. This will save you and your team from dealing with a major headache right out of the gate.
