Mobile Web Indexing

Dany Coutinho

Google has officially completed its transition to mobile-first website indexing, adapting to the ever-changing online landscape dominated by mobile devices. The primary driving force behind this change is the shift in user behaviour, with over 70% of search queries originating from mobile devices. Users now expect a seamless and mobile-optimised experience.

What does this mean for websites and brands? It necessitates a strong focus on optimising their websites to ensure they perform well and look good on mobile devices. Mobile-first indexing also emphasises the importance of page speed optimisation, as fast-loading mobile pages are vital for user retention and engagement. Google has long factored page speed into its ranking algorithm, making fast, mobile-optimised websites a top priority.

At Sillyfish and Digital Native, we have consistently prioritised website page load speed, content relevance, and search engine optimisation for all our clients. While some websites may experience a decline in organic search rankings due to this change, our clients are well-prepared and anticipate minimal to no impact. This approach safeguards organic search rankings.

However, the impact extends beyond organic search rankings to pay-per-click advertising through platforms like Google Ads. Landing page relevance plays a significant role in determining Quality Scores. If a webpage loads slowly or offers a subpar user experience, resulting in a high bounce rate, it can lead to a lower Quality Score and higher Cost per Click (CPC) bids to secure an ad rank.
