How to Prepare for Mobile-First Design
This workshop is led by Andreas Ramos, author of 17 books on digital marketing. He was the Head of Global SEO at Cisco, where he worked with 44 languages in 85 countries. He also founded three digital agencies (one with 170 staff) and was the head of the digital agency at Acxiom, which did digital marketing for Fortune 200 companies. Andreas has trained dozens of interns and staffers and he brings that knowledge to you this two-hour workshop where you’ll learn about mobile-first Google indexing and how to prepare for it.
Your website may be about to fall off an SEO cliff with Google’s core SEO update to mobile-first indexing in March 2021. Whenever Google rolls out a major core update like this one, hundreds of thousands of websites may suddenly find their traffic take a nosedive — and they will be scrambling to triage the problem. Many marketing people may lose sleep and their jobs over their lack of preparation for this core update.
In this workshop, you will learn how to prepare your website for Google’s switch to mobile-first indexing in March 2021. You will get clear examples of what this means and step-by-step actionable tactics that you can apply to your organization’s website, so that you do not experience a radical drop off in traffic. You’ll also see how to measure your website to see if it will be compliant with Google’s standards. Examples, links, and code will be included in the workshop that you can copy, edit, and paste.
