Any web shops catering to the Google Mobilegeddon update / changes?

As mentioned in Webflow’s Blog -

Google latest search algorithm is catering only to mobile friendly version sites when people search on a mobile device.

I’m looking at aggressively going after this for business, based on the JTBD philosophy (Jobs to be Done)

Companies need customers to be able to find them on their smartphones.
If Company X doesn’t have a RWD for mobile, google will penalize them and thus push them down the search results or pages.

My hypothesis is
It’s harder to get a brand / company to do an overall revamp on their site and look. This sales lead time can take many months for all departments to sign off. Instead, what if with webflow we just took their existing pages and made it mobile friendly. And use something like a javascript mobile detect script to know which smartphones [ smaller viewports ] show up and push them to a of the site.

Anyone else thinking of offering up this type of service? If so, I’d love to talk to you

As the stats read…
92% of all clicks happen on the first page, and the #1 position gets 33% of the clicks.

I know my latest project > passed the test, but apparently through the clients ‘webmaster tools’ they scored a 60 out of 100 on just how mobile friendly it is… I think one item he said is that some of the button hit area’s (width / height of button) were too small… so guessing this falls under the same kind of iOS Human Interface Guidelines that says button sizes should be at least 44 x 44 pixels [ the safe hit area for a thumb or finger ]

have a great day webFlow’ers :wink:
