Project6 Design Explains Mobile-First Indexing - How To Make The Most Of It and other Cutting-edge SEO Tactics

EMERYVILLE, Calif., Aug. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ --A But what does mobile-first indexing mean, and what does it entail to be ready by the spring 2021 deadline? Put simply, mobile-first indexing means that Google will rely mostly on the mobile version of any website in order to index and rank it. For sites that already mirror all their desktop site's content on mobile, this may not seem like a big changea??but for many sites, "desktop-only" features and content can put a wrench in the works.However, this change is ultimately an important sign of the times. Google reports that the majority of users now access Google via a mobile device, so the demand for being able to access the full breadth of any site's content via smartphones has never been higher (or more important for businesses). The change to mobile-first indexing is a reflection of these user habits.What you may not know, however, is that for many "new" sites, mobile-first indexing has already been the default since July 2019. If your business's site was launched since that time (or was "discovered" by Google for the first time since then), mobile-first indexing may already be the norm for you. For sites that predated July 2019, site owners are notified via Google Search Console when the switch is made.Here are some of the best ways to optimize the mobile version of your site so that Googlebot can accurately see your content.Make sure to use the same robots meta tags on the mobile version of your site as the desktop version. Using the correct meta tags helps ensure your site appears in the right sections of Google, such as News, and that it's only accessible when you need it to be, such as for time-sensitive content like sales. For more guidance on this, be sure to visit Google's reference guide for robots meta tags. Of course, if your site is built correctly and is responsive, you shouldn't see any issues here because you shouldn't have a second 'mobile version' of the site.
