June Webinar: Mobile-Friendly News

posted in Digital PR News |



Google mobile







The new Google algorithm, which was introduced on April 21, favors websites with large text, links that are easy to find and navigate, and a design that resizes to fit whatever screen it’s viewed on, be that a laptop, phone or tablet. The section of every company’s website that must be mobile-friendly is their newsroom – whether BtoC or BtoB.  This content has a high user interaction – with media, bloggers and your buying public.

Webinar date:  June 24, 2015

Time: 10 am Pacific, 1pm Eastern

In April Google implemented their mobile-friendly search algorithm. The number of people accessing news on their mobile devices in rapidly increasing. If your newsroom does not pass the Google mobile-friendly test, your news content will not show up in mobile search queries.

“As people increasingly search on their mobile devices,” she said, “we want to make sure they can find content that’s not only relevant and timely, but also easy to read and interact with on smaller mobile screens.” Google

A recent study by Portent revealed that 40% of the top websites ranked by Alexa do not pass the Google mobile-friendly test. PRESSfeed did a study of the Inc 500 in June 2015 and found that just over 50% are not yet mobile-friendly.
