Desiree Williams Savory:

man checking his phoneMobile responsive websites are probably one of the most important features of being on the internet today. Take a look at the following blog post and take action as soon as possible.

Today, Google released a change to its algorithm that gives higher search scores to sites it deems “mobile-friendly.” Curious WordPressers might be asking:

  1. How can I be sure my site is mobile-friendly?
  2. What can I do if my site is not mobile-friendly?

1. See if your site is mobile-friendly

Visit Google’s mobile-friendly test link and enter your site’s address (e.g., http://dailypost.wordpress.com or http://automattic.com). Google will then analyze your site and declare it mobile-friendly or not.

Did your site pass? YAY! Pass GO and collect $200 from the Community Chest.

2. What can I do if my site is not mobile-friendly?

If your site failed Google’s test, you might be using an older theme that’s not responsive. Responsive themes change their layout slightly when someone visits via tablet or mobile phone to ensure that important content like the site title, post titles, and post content can be read on smaller screens.

Time is so precious. TeamViewer is gold.

Traffic jamLiving in Houston has its price, and that price is traffic. I don’t know what it is about the planning of a city, but when Houston decided to tear up the I-10 train track years ago, I knew it was a big mistake. Sitting in traffic an average of 1.5 hours to drive 20 miles is just not fair. You can get at least 2 projects taken care of in that time period when working from home.

That’s why working with clients remotely, using TeamViewer is gold.

Whether you are helping your family member or assisting a client, take a look at TeamViewer. It’s secure, easy to use and an affordable option to upgrade.

Facebook Dumps Bing, Will Introduce Its Own Search Tool

Desiree Williams Savory:

A very interesting blog post; Facebook Dumps Bing as its primary search provider. What search tool will they announce on Monday? #technologycoach

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

It seems that Facebook quietly removed Bing as its primary search provider over the weekend, announcing plans to debut its own search tool on Monday, according to Reuters.

The report says that Facebook’s new search tool will give users the ability to filter through old comments and other information from friends.

Facebook has been building out its search products for a long time, using Bing as an extra layer to provide results beyond the Interest Graph in an effort to avoid letting rival Google into the system.

A Facebook spokesperson told Reuters: “We’re not currently showing web search results in Facebook Search because we’re focused on helping people find what’s been shared with them on Facebook. We continue to have a great partnership with Microsoft of lots of different areas.”

Microsoft said almost the same thing to VentureBeat: “Facebook recently changed its search experience to focus on helping…
