Google Slapdown Started for Websites – Authors Beware!

IS it a bird? A plane? Jeeze Louise, it’s Google and it’s not knocking at your door with a bouquet of lovely flowers. It dropped a dead bouquet for plenty of authors who we discovered at the AuthorU’s Extravaganza in May were clueless of the changes that started flowing in April. Although AuthorU blasted an alert in March that Google would be penalizing websites that weren’t mobile friendly, many didn’t see it, or chose to ignore it.

If you haven’t gotten your website up to par … STOP … and call your website admin/designer pronto. This is a must do. Mobile Friendly on everything you are posting from now on.

This is the AuthorU Alert posted in March …  google slap

Is your website mobile friendly?  As in Really, Really, Really Mobile Friendly? In April, Google reared it’s power head and told all–get there pronto. If you don’t, your not-so-friendly website will go through some notching down in ranking beginning that month.

Gulp … it’s the Google Slapdown for sure.

rankingDoes yours pass? … meaning you better be getting a solid “B” or you, and anything else you are selling, may become invisible in Google rankings. That’s a significant ouch.

If your website is at least a year old and your web designer has not been in touch with you about doing a morph/upgrade … shame on him or her.
