Re: What is mobile SEO?

Mobile SEO is essentially the same as traditional SEO. If your website ranks high in the search engines on your desktop or laptop computer, then your site will likely be in the same search engine position on your mobile phone.

The only difference that will determine how your website ranks in mobile searches is if your site is "mobile-friendly". If you are using WordPress, then I would recommend you get a plugin that will make it mobile-friendly such as WP Mobile Touch. This will make your site easier to navigate for mobile users and the search engines will favor your site in mobile search.

Since more and more people are using smartphones to search for solutions and answers online than a desktop or laptop computer, it is now more important to make your site mobile-friendly to please the search engines and future subscribers.

Thank you for the tip on WP plug in. To most website owners, it is a must that they are able to make their website mobile friendly. Great content is by default a necessity for all websites, but in order to maximize mobile SEO, aside from great content technical setup and site speed (the faster loading time the better) amust also be taken into consideration.

Mobile SEO should be a matter of increasing visibility of your website, not only in mobile search engines but on the actual mobile and often touch-enabled devices themselves.

Mobile Optimization is the process of ensuring that visitors who access your site from mobile devices have an experience optimized for the device.
Every year people spend more and more time on their mobile devices and tablets, but many websites still aren't designed to account for different screen sizes and load times. Mobile Optimization takes a look at site design, site structure, page speed, and more to make sure you're not inadvertently turning mobile visitors away.
Here are six essential elements to ensure your mobile SEO success:
• presents content well on a phone
• does not need zooming
• is easily readable on small screens
• is easy to navigate with a finger
• is helpful to someone using a phone
• is understood properly by Google
