Google Mobile Update - 21st of April 2015
A major move for online services and digital devices

Rumors are flying about Google's upcoming mobile-friendly update, and bits of reliable information have come from several sources. Unless you have been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard Google's recent announcement regarding mobile-friendly websites:

"Starting April 21, we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in our search results."

What changes is Google making to its algorithm on April 21st?

Recently, Google has been rolling out lots of changes to apps, Google Play, the presentation of mobile SERPS, and some of the more advanced development guidelines that impact mobile; we believe that many of these are in preparation for the 21st update. Google has been downplaying some of these changes, and we have no exclusive advanced knowledge about anything that Google will announce on 21st, but based on what we have seen and heard recently, here is our best guess of what is coming in the future (on 21st or soon thereafter).

Support Month

We believe Google will launch a new mobile crawler (probably with an Android user-agent) that can do a better job of crawling single-page web apps, Android apps, and maybe even Deep Links in iOS apps. The new Mobile-Friendly guidelines that launched last month focus on exposing JS and CSS because Android apps are built in Java, and single-page web apps rely heavily on JavaScript for their fluid, app-like experience.

MacGyver Tip
Erase Sticker Gunk?

Ever tried to get stickers off of something, and thirty profanity-laced minutes later, you're no further then when you started? Pink erasers to the rescue!

For instance, say you used to have a Tony Blair bumper sticker on your laptop case...hypothetically. There's some pretty nasty residue left over, but a simple pencil eraser session should do the clean-up trick...hope this helps you out of that "sticky" situation...
