iLoveSimple newsletter – URGENT Google Update for ALL websites – May 2015

Urgent Google update

I’m sure you’re all sick of me saying “GET YOUR WEBSITE MOBILE READY” well now, thanks to Google if your site isn’t mobile ready then you’re going to lose traffic.

Is your website earning its keep?

Why?

Because this simple method forces them to PROVE they are giving what you are paying them for – MEANINGFUL traffic.
