Mobile-Friendly/Responsive Design

I am about to start the arduous process of recoding all my themes to be responsive across all devices, starting with my own theme. So if I start to look a bit weird here and there, rest assured that things will be back to normal soon.

According to Business News Daily:

Is your website mobile-friendly? If not, don’t be surprised if its ranking plummets on Google search results.

“Mobilegeddon” is here, and websites that aren’t mobile-friendly will suffer from the latest Google apocalypse. The search giant is officially updating its algorithms today (April 21) to favor websites that look and perform better on mobile devices, making them appear higher on search results.

The referenced article was published April 21, 2015, but I’ve been busy with other things and only saw it today, so I’m a little late to the party.

After my site’s theme I will start updating WordPress themes. Green Apples is going to change to two sidebars on the right rather than one on either side, for search engine and design reasons. I’ll be taking my time but it shouldn’t be too long. I had better not – technology moves so quickly, but one thing that won’t change is that mobile-friendly is here to stay.
