You might have recently heard about an upcoming update to Google search, which is focused around mobile compatibility. Google will be changing how it ranks websites on April 21st, and websites that aren't mobile friendly - or don't have a mobile friendly version - will be penalised.

The good news is that all Jack Marlow websites are either Responsive (meaning they're mobile friendly out of the box) or are mobile compatible via an alternate version. Better yet this mobile layout, if it's not already on your site, is free!
The mobile layout that Jack Marlow uses for non-responsive sites takes your existing website content, and simply resizes everything for a mobile device. What this means is that you won't need to create a second version of your website specifically for mobile, just keep working on your existing Jack Marlow website and we'll take care of the rest.
Sadly some of our clients have reported contact from some SEO companies, either to advertise their own mobile layouts, or to try and cause panic by saying that your website is not mobile friendly. Sometimes this has happened, even for sites that ARE ALREADY mobile friendly!
We're continuing to roll out our mobile design to all Jack Marlow websites over the next fortnight before the Google update takes place, so there's nothing to worry about. If an SEO company contacts you (or has already!), please let us know - we're collating some of the worst clangers for a future blog post. :)
