google mobile friendly update

It’s important that you have a mobile friendly website.

Wow, well that was anticlimactic.

As usual, I’ve been keeping an eye out on the news important to you and your business and the biggest news over the past week has been around Google’s “Mobilegeddon” – the update focused on mobile friendly sites or as frequently referred to as the Google Mobile Friendly Update.

I’m happy to report (from our data) I think Google has overplayed this. While there have been some minor fluctuations it hasn’t been as “epic” as they made out.

That’s not to say you shouldn’t update your website to be mobile friendly – since any time you can improve user experience you should – but the world will not come to an end if you don’t do it this weekend 😉

Here are a few other things I spotted:

kiteboarding

I’m curious, how many hours a week do you work? I’ve been clocking in around 55 hours per week using a tool called Rescue Time – I’m trying to figure out if that’s high or low? As a business owner it’s important to get the right work/life balance. How much do you work?

I actually recently started kiteboarding as part of my work/life balance! What do you do when you’re not working?

Not too sure where to get started?
