This just in, from Google:
“Starting April 21, we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in our search results…”
If your site is not mobile friendly, we need to do something about that. See the definition of significant to understand the urgency..
Significant : very important
See? Ok, now lets be proactive! Check to see if Google views your site as mobile friendly by taking their Mobile Friendly Test.
All of the Pretty Darn Cute Design Genesis Themes just so happen to be completely mobile friendly. If you’re not sure what “mobile friendly” means it’s often referred to as “responsive design” or “mobile responsive design” but will soon become known as just “design” as it is so important a website have the ability to adapt to all screen sizes.
When you search on a mobile device you’ll see under the site name whether or not the is mobile friendly.
A little sidenote about our Adorable WordPress theme, I will be taking it off the market in the coming days. If you want to grab it, now is the time. Adorable is mobile responsive, but is no longer up to the standard we wish our customers websites to be held. It’s a fantastically whimsical theme, with great features, but the code is semi-outdated. That said, if you’re using it now there’s no need to worry about a thing. The theme still functions like a champ, and we will always offer support for Adorable (and MomPreneur which we recently stopped selling for the same reason). The rest of the PDCD Themes collection is all very much up to date, and has the latest and greatest in web standards. Hooray!
My promise to you is to always keep our feminine wordpress themes up to date in every way, and on top of coming trends in a way that your design still remain timeless. It may sound like a sales pitch when I say to think of me as your friend in the web design business, but that is truly how I think of all of you. I want to make sure that everyone “wearing” a PDCD theme stands out above the rest.
