Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is ever-changing, and a drop in search engine position is something no businesses should suffer from.

Loading time (on mobile) is the key ranking factor in Google’s algorithm update that is going to be released on 31st July 2018 – the update continues to give higher rankings to websites with better mobile usability and speed. Studies show that people do care a lot about how fast a website loads, that is why Google has decided that page speed will be a critical ranking factor for mobiles now. So, from the 31st July 2018, if your website fails the Google’s ‘Mobile Usability and Speed Test’ you may see a decline in your mobile rankings – and with mobile search volumes outperforming desktop search volumes, that’s big news. No, that’s MASSIVE news!
