Are we mobile-friendly?

Are we mobile-friendly?

According to Google, "In the USA, 94% of people with smartphones search for local information on their phones. Interestingly, 77% of mobile searches occur at home or at work, places where desktop computers are likely to be present."

Google figured that people no longer want to zoom in when reading website content on their mobile phones. Instead, they want to access information quick and easy. Therefore, as of early this week, website optimisation for mobile devices is no longer an option. If you wish your website to rank well on Google (when searched from mobile devices), your site has to be "mobile-friendly".

This update applies to individual pages, not your entire website. You can use Google Mobile-Friendly Test to check mobile-friendliness for individual page(s) on your site.

This new Google update is not affecting searches from desktops or tablets.

A week in a computer repairs shop: Day 5

Posted by Mario on 16 July 2013

I replaced a MacBook Pro keyboard and touchpad today. I've replaced many laptop keyboards and such jobs are (generally) quick and painless. "So how hard could this one be?" I asked myself. I had to disassemble the notebook completely in order to get to the keyboard and… I couldn't believe what I saw… the keyboard was secured with zillion tiny little screws (below are a couple of pictures showing how small these screws are). One of those little guys was between each and every key. And because they were so small, it was very easy to damage their head (after this they would become useless). So I had to remove them and then screw them back in without damaging them. Now I can (sort of) understand why an Apple Service Centre said to the client that the problem couldn't be fixed.
