May

Let me be honest: I don’t like the Eurovision – it’s just a carefully crafted money making marketing tool for countries to advertise themselves on television, and has absolutely nothing to do with a singing competition.

This means, that for desktop users, your ranking will not be affected (you can take a sigh of relief now).

But, take that breath back. According to recent statistics, around 80% of users worldwide use their smartphones to search the internet. In addition, the amount of time users spend on their smartphones just exceeded the amount of time users spend on their desktop computers. This is why Google decided to address the issue of mobile ‘unfriendly’ websites.
