Yottaa Launches Updates To Address New Google Mobile SEO Algorithms
ContextIntelligence Platform Enables Enterprises to Fully Optimize User Engagement on Mobile Devices & Increase SEO Rankings
Waltham, MA — April 20, 2015 — Yottaa, the leading Adaptive CDN service for optimizing user experience on web and mobile applications, today announced updates to its ContextIntelligence Platform to address new SEO algorithms that Google will introduce on April 21st. These algorithms will place higher SEO rankings by Google to sites deemed to be “Mobile Friendly” for users originating from mobile or tablet devices.
Google’s SEO algorithm change is in response to rapidly increasing traffic growth on mobile devices. The new algorithms will use the Googlebot to access and rank mobile pages. Sites deemed “Not Mobile-Friendly” by Google will receive lower SEO rankings, which will result in less traffic to those sites from organic searches. To provide a benchmark for webmasters, Google has created a “Mobile-Friendly Test” page to give them a simple and easy way to test their sites for mobile compatibility.
Yottaa’s ContextIntelligence platform optimizes web applications using a cloud-native architecture that analyzes client and web infrastructure requests and responses to improve page load times, application responsiveness, and ultimately business impact. Yottaa’s customers take advantage of visitor traffic profiles that uniquely optimize traffic and content for desktop and mobile consumption. With the latest ContextIntelligence engine updates, additional mobile search engine bot profiles now allow Yottaa to deliver optimized HTML pages from cache, utilizing mobile CSS and specific image transformations, to ensure Google’s mobile SEO bots receive a page with the best possible mobile performance. The updates are especially important for sites that use Adaptive Web Design (AWD) and Responsive Web Design (RWD) because Yottaa caches and enables adaptive mobile content differently than the desktop equivalent, and further differentiates between real user and bot-optimized content caching and optimization behavior.
“With the launch of Google’s new mobile SEO algorithms, we realized it was imperative to provide our customers with an automated solution that would be specifically optimized for these changes,” said Bob Buffone, Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Yottaa. “Based on the flexible architecture of our ContextIntelligence engine, we were able to quickly tune our engine’s responses to end user inputs via a segmented profile for mobile search bot traffic. By doing so, Yottaa is actually fixing the configuration shortcomings of most CMS and eCommerce platform implementations by providing more granular and appropriate profile support to differentiate between desktop and mobile content. These updates to Yottaa’s ContextIntelligence Platform also overcome a long-standing content delivery shortcoming by providing granular caching and optimization behavior to match user consumption patterns. Most importantly, these updates ensure our customers can focus on fully optimizing their websites for mobile devices and receive higher SEO rankings from Google.”
