With the importance of mobile becoming increasingly more obvious to SEO after Google announcing their mobile friendly algorithm, and the bombshell that non-mobile friendly sites may get penalised, it is no surprise that the latest information released by Google reflects this!

The news that more searches in the UK are done on mobile and more YouTube views are also on mobile was announced at London Tech Week by managing director of Google earlier this week.

Ex Google employee, Dan Cobley, shared a post on Google plus announcing the news.

Google’s mobile algorithm was launched on April 21st 2015 but effects of the update were seen rolled out over a week later, few actually witnessing significant changes on the release date. Anticipated as ‘mobilegeddon’, the algorithm quietly got to work. Many webmasters saw no change and took to Twitter with their confusion. Webmaster trends analyst, John Mueller, took part in a Google hangout and said “From the first day to the next day, I don’t think you’ll see a big change. But if you compare last week to next week, then you should see a big change.
