Featured Client: Ludwig Painting and "Mobilegeddon"
Published: July 22, 2015
Josh Ludwig, CEO of Ludwig Painting and cousin of president and principal designer, M. Kendall Ludwig, was very happy with the website we created for him a few years ago. But WE had one major problem with it: it wasn't mobile-friendly.
As you've most likely heard by now, Google began rolling out a search engine update on April 21st, dubbed “Mobilegeddon.”
From Google: “We’re boosting the ranking of mobile-friendly pages on mobile search results. Now searchers can more easily find high-quality and relevant results where text is readable without tapping or zooming, tap targets are spaced appropriately, and the page avoids unplayable content or horizontal scrolling.”
So basically: if your site isn't optimized for mobile, your site is most likely already losing MAJOR traffic on mobile searches. This is especially important given that, as of this year, mobile devices are now the main source of Google search traffic.
Due to this news, we at CurlyRed have decided that mobile-friendly sites will now become the standard for all of our customers moving forward.
As you can see, Ludwig Painting's site looks as fantastic in mobile form as it does on a desktop—and Josh no longer needs to worry about losing out on potential mobile traffic and customers.
So if you're in need of a website that looks great on every device, contact us today!
