Also worth keeping an eye on is a website revamp in the works. We have plenty of new professional photos of our team to work with – as alluded to in last month’s newsletter – so look forward to a site that will blow you away visually and user experience-wise.

In other recent news, we’ve recently closed a deal with a new premium client, and we’re offering new service packages to all current and prospective clients. If you want to learn more about these customizable offerings, just give us a call any time.

And in more general news, we’re prepping for the holidays around here. Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner, and we’re getting ready to kill it for our clients when it comes to holiday online traffic!

What’s New in SEO: Google Mobile-Friendly Label Is Retired

As we pointed out in a blog post on responsive design earlier this year, Google explicitly identifies mobile-friendly webpages when you conduct a search via smartphone.

Well, that is no longer the case, according to Search Engine Land. As of the end of August, the “Mobile-friendly” label in Google Search is M.I.A. The company gave about a week’s notice before the change, but now it is official.

To see an example, in the aforementioned blog post from January, we showed a screenshot of mobile search for “Flower Store Phoenix.” The results at the top of the organic list were all designated “Mobile-friendly,” as you’ll see in the screenshot in that post.

If we search the same term now, here’s what we see:Google Mobile-Friendly Label Missing - Eminent SEO

Wait, does that mean we have no idea if the result we click leads to a mobile-friendly site?

Don’t worry about it too intensely: Google is on record saying that 85 percent of all pages in the mobile search results are now deemed mobile-friendly. That number is only going to increase over time.

Just because the label has disappeared doesn’t mean websites aren’t still being judged by their mobile friendliness. Having a mobile-friendly site certainly remains a ranking signal in mobile search, according to Search Engine Land.

If you’re not sure if your website, or any other one you plan on visiting, is optimized for mobile devices, try Google’s Mobile-Friendly Test or even ResponsiveTest.net.

August Social Media Roundup

As part of our social media outreach in August, we were particularly vigilant about using Twitter to share many of the outstanding SEO- and tech-related articles we’ve recently come across – from all over the web. In fact, if you read everything we shared on that platform last month, then you’re halfway to becoming an SEO guru. If you haven’t followed us on Twitter yet, please give our timeline a look. Additionally, below you’ll find a recap of our most memorable social media shares in August from our Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts.

Words Will Sometimes Hurt You: How to Use the Right Words on Your Website to Drive Conversions

I’ve got the power! Did you know that there are certain groups of “power words” marketers rely on to drive engagement and conversions? The effectiveness of many of these terms was discovered well before the internet era, but now they’re essential when it comes to website marketing. If you don’t know which terms we’re talking about, get caught up here.

Keep Your Domain Game Strong: Setting Up Your HTTPS Address Improperly Can Cause SEO Issues

Roughly 34 percent of all results shown in Google Search now have an HTTPS prefix. This means many websites have been upgraded to a secure domain, and we’re only going to see more of them do so. While that will be increasingly important in the SEO race going forward, be sure not to make the transition sloppily. Avoid these missteps when migrating your website to HTTPS.
