Mobile search results are different to standard web search results.

Acknowledging the undeniable shift towards mobile usage, businesses must prioritise their presence in mobile search results to reach their target audience. It is crucial to recognise that desktop search results differ from mobile search results.

Google, known for frequently updating its algorithm, releases up to 1000 updates annually. However, significant changes in their core algorithm occur only a few times a year, and it is essential for businesses to take appropriate action in response. Notably, Google has a dedicated search engine ranking position (SERP) algorithm specifically designed for smartphones, indicating the importance of this platform.

The prevalence of smartphone usage has steadily increased over the past 10 years, while desktop usage is becoming less important to some users. Not necessarily outdated, as desktop is still an extremely important component to any website, but mobile user data doesn’t lie. Consequently, businesses must focus their efforts on perfecting the smartphone experience to optimise advertising, consumer usage, and conversion rates. This priority aligns with the concept of mobile SEO and mobile rankings.

What does this shift mean for businesses? The performance of websites on smartphones and mobile devices now carries significant weight in determining rankings. To ensure visibility on smartphones and secure a spot on the first page of search results, websites must provide flawless and engaging user experiences.

Despite boasting impressive rankings on desktops, numerous websites fail to gain exposure on mobile search results. With over 80% of people relying on smartphones as their primary device, businesses simply cannot afford to neglect this platform.
