Other news you should know
If you’re eligible to register or reserve the shorter version of your .nz name, you’ve only got until 1pm 30 March 2015 to do so. After that, it will become available for general registration (first come, first serve). Make sure you don’t miss out. Should you register the shorter .nz domain name? We think you should. We’re pretty sure it will become the main domain name extension in time for New Zealand. And yup, we’ve switched to https://goodwebsites.nz.
History lesson of Google’s updates
Over the past 10 Years, Google has updated its search algorithm 79 times. Many of these updates are simply Google growing up in public, some are house cleaning issues and some are major shifts that have a profound effect on who top ranks and why. If you’ve got a spare 10 minutes here is a great video of the Google’s updates.
Google wants your website to be mobile friendly
Earlier Google started adding a “mobile-friendly” label to mobile search results if a website is mobile friendly. Now Google is sending mass scale notifications via email and Webmaster Tools warning sites that are not mobile-friendly that it will cause issues for them if they want to rank well for smartphone users.
