It is the month of April, and this is not an April Fool’s Day joke. Starting April 21st, Google will make non mobile-friendly websites disappear from the Google search. This is not a joke! If your website is not mobile friendly, you will disappear from the Google Rankings!
You will lose business from current customers. They won’t be able to contact your shop, and they will become frustrated. Ask yourself, why would they be a repeat customer if they can’t check on their vehicle or leave reviews about their most recent experience?
And did I mention, you won’t gain any business from new customers. They don’t know your shop exists. They don’t know you exist. Maybe it is April Fool’s because your competitors who have mobile-friendly websites are laughing at you. They can be found, and your customers are most likely contacting them .
Your customers are online, and you need to be there. 88% of consumers who search for a type of local business on a mobile device call or go to that business within 24 hours. Don’t you want this to be your shop?
