Google's latest update, dubbed "mobilegeddon" began rolling out yesterday. This update poses a significant threat to the way top websites are ranked in its search results. Google has effectively changed its definition of mobile readiness. Our experts have been studying this development closely, and can provide commentary for journalists looking for perspectives on this emerging story.

“Our Research on over three hundred websites in North America reveals that only 22% of organizations pass Google's new definition of mobile responsiveness,” says Robert Carter, Co-Founder and Vice President of Product at Toronto-based software company, ExpertFile.

"Google is clearly sending a signal that the marked increase in mobile device usage matters. The needs of mobile users must be recognized in the way that relevant search results are delivered,” writes Peter Evans, Co-Founder & CEO at ExpertFile.
