Big changes to Google’s search algorithms are coming: beginning April 21, the company will increase the ranking of sites that are mobile-friendly and surface app results much higher.

The company says that the change will have a “significant impact” on all mobile searches in all languages worldwide, but as a result Google says that users will find higher quality results.

Along with this change, Google will start to use more information from indexed apps as a factor when ranking search results for users that are signed-in and have the app installed.

These changes are great news for mobile users as it should help motivate those sites that still don’t have a mobile site to actually build one. Google started highlighting mobile-friendly sites in results last year.

Site admins who want to test their site’s mobile compatibility can use Google’s tools to quickly evaluate the status of a page.

Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense. - Gertrude Stein</p><br />
<p>How attached are you to technology? Are you perhaps reading this on your smartphone at this moment? When’s the last time you used a map? How often do you send a quick text rather than make a phone call? In a society where technology rules with an iron fist, some may go as far as suggesting that the attachment is more of an addiction - and they wouldn’t be wrong.<br /><br />
The extreme weather we’ve been experiencing in the last few weeks has brought with it many challenges. As a result of the ice storm that hit the GTA and surrounding areas, hundreds of thousands of people were left without power. While there are thousands of people in the world who are without power daily, the loss of something we take for granted as a society was shocking. While the city came together during this crisis, there was no denying the desperation that plagued citizens without power. And maybe that’s the problem.<br /><br />
It seems that as a generation, we have become too reliant on electronics and the technology which they offer. Without heat or power, the majority of the GTA was forced to “unplug” and the technological absence was strongly felt.<br /><br />
The question is, what does this mean for us? By being dependent on technology have we lost something? Some would argue yes. Perhaps we have lost the appreciation of any given moment, too wrapped up in capturing the perfect photo instead of enjoying the present. Perhaps we have become complacent in life, knowing that there is always an easy way to do things with the aid of our electronics. The photo above is a superb illustration of our dependency. While technological advances have expanded our global networks and simplified many aspects of our lives, they have also been detrimental in the sense that we have become a lazy generation. Technology has made it possible to believe that things will be done for us - without any work or effort.<br /><br />
The power outages experienced during the ice storm forced society to “unplug” for a short period of time, however, perhaps we should be unplugging more often. The much needed breaks from our technological dependence can serve to remind us that there is more to life than “apps”. While we stare down at tiny screens, it’s important to remember that the world continues to blossom all around us.<br /><br />
Start this week off by reminding yourself that while technology is often necessary and beneficial, we should not become reliant on it.There’s a world outside our window, just waiting to be explored! And that, is worth much more than reading about it on Google!
