Mobilegeddon: How Mobile Friendly Is Your Site?

This week, Google unveiled the Mobilegeddon update which is expected to change the way the search engine will recommend websites on smartphones and tablets. This shift is a;sp expected to sway millions of people and how they shop, eat and find information.

Websites that don’t fit the criteria will be deranked from Google’s search results, while those meeting the criteria will be more likely to appear at the first pages of Google- a goal that can translate into more conversions and sales.

Aaron Brindle, a spokesperson for Google, stated that they are making available a number of tools to help small businesses know if they’re mobile friendly or not, and how to make the switch. Brindle also stated that if a page with high quality content is not mobile friendly, it could still rank high if it strongly relates to the search query. You can find such tools on Google Webmaster Tools.

The statistics support the change. In a study done in 2014 by Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield and Byers called Internet Trends Report, the mobile market is growing exponentially and is over taking the number of desktop computers inside homes. Internet advertising has risen from $62 billion to $116 billion from 2008 to 2014. At least 30 per cent of Internet visits are from mobile phones. Industry experts also argue that by 2016 mobile phones will account for more than half of all Internet traffic.

The fear of being “dethroned” by the Mobilegeddon encouraged thousands of webmasters to take action and make their sites mobile accessible. Upon the unveiling of Mobilegeddon on Tuesday, Google reported an uptick of 4.7% of sites that are now mobile friendly compared to two months ago. I was a bit shocked to learn that the number was only 4.7%, but I guess Google’s index of web pages is pretty large. There is also probably a huge number of web pages that are not being maintained, but currently are in the process of being resolved.

InfoFlo, a leader in the CRM Software industry, has embraced the changes Google unveiled this week is in full compliance. In the Fall of 2014, it redesigned it’s website and ensured that it is accessible to mobile browsers and mobile audiences.

How to Establish a Routine with CRM Software

routine tasksOne key thing that successful enterprises have in common is an established routine. In every job and industry, there are things that must be done. Some of these tasks can be done daily or weekly, while others can be completed monthly or annually. Nonetheless, they must be done.

The best way to ensure that they are done is to create what I call a “wheel” that all employees and managers follow, including you. And set up a little procedure to help you manage them.

For example, if you have a list of website you must be checking every morning, it could be helpful to bookmark them in the bookmark folder of your browser. When you click on the folder, all the websites open up and you can easily go through them one by one.

Unfortunately not all procedures are website based and cannot be easily bookmarked like websites. So it is definitely a good idea to make a list. A good Task Manager in a CRM Software will help you do that. With the task manager you will never forget what you are supposed to do because you will get reminders before and after the time the tasks were scheduled to be completed.

While taking note of the routine tasks you need to complete, it’s also important to learn to delegate. Making these lists will help you manage staff and delegate tasks you do not have time to complete, and in the process, make your office a productive and more streamlined one.

One of Carmel Vision’s InfoFlo Software features is the task manager. The Task Management feature allows you to create and manage tasks with ease, attach files and set email and pop up reminders. You can also share tasks, set priority levels and tag by type or status. Try it for free by clicking on this link.
