More and more Internet searches are taking place from mobile devices so it makes sense that your website should be mobile friendly. As of 21st April, any Internet search from a mobile device now brings up mobile-friendly websites first.

What’s more, it could be just a matter of time before this change affects searches from any kind of device, mobile or not.
