Mobile Friendly Day

Tuesday, April 21, 2015 ~ Well, the dreaded day has come for some of us who have been online for a long time and not paid attention to updating our websites regularly. As of today sites not appearing mobile friendly to Google will be losing rank in search results. That means if you want your site to be easily found by those searching for content you offer from your site, they are going to have a difficult finding it. Is your web site mobile friendly? Did you know you can check whether your web site is mobile friendly or not by going to the Google Developer’s Mobile Guide and clicking on Mobile-Friendly Test?

Sadly I’ve been struggling with health issues since January and while today is the day I expect to get to the heart of the matter with my health dilemma, I doubt seriously I will have much time to deal with website updates. The easiest and fastest thing to do to preserve search engine ranking if you are already running your site on WordPress is to choose a mobile responsive theme. That’s the approach I’m going to have to take so be prepared for some changes in the visual appearance as soon I am strong enough to tackle the situation.

YouTube sure comes in handy when conjuring up memories worth savoring. I spent over an hour browsing video clips featuring his antics. This one turned out to be my favorite:
