    Is your website mobile friendly?


    If not, you should be aware that Google has recently released a mobile algorithm update that will reward mobile responsive websites with higher search results, while penalising mobile unfriendly websites by burying or removing those sites entirely from the mobile search index.


    All the sites we build are mobile friendly as standard.
