Big news in the search engine industry this month, Google (Which I'm sure you know by now is the worlds largest search engine) has updated the the way it handles mobile searches to care about whether a website has been optimised for mobile devices or not.

What does this mean?

In short, if you want to make sure your site is coming up on search results when people use their mobiles, then you should probably have a website that has been properly optimised to work on mobile and tablet devices. If you don't then you could be risking not appearing for the search terms that are important to you.

What can I do if my site isn't responsive to mobile devices?

If your site is particularly old, it may be that you need a new one completely... Though rest assured that this is not always the case! It is possible to take a website that already exists and make it responsive. If you have a large site with lots of content it may not be practical to start again, especially if you are looking for a quick fix for the time being.
