Google Mobile Changes
The widely publicized changes in Google search rankings went into effect on April 21, 2015. With these changes, Google will now give preferential treatment to websites considered mobile friendly. Although not specifically penalizing websites that are not considered mobile friendly, the ultimate result will be the same; lower search result rankings for those without a mobile friendly website.

Not sure if your website is mobile friendly? Just being able to view your website on a mobile device is not always good enough. Fortunately, the folks at Google were kind enough to provide a tool to let people know whether or not their website is considered mobile friendly. The tool is free and easy to use. Simply go to the Google mobile tool page and enter your website address. Click the Analyze tab and a report will be generated immediately with either a Yes or No. If your website is not considered mobile friendly and search traffic is important to your business, contact Veridean, we'll be happy to assist you in either upgrading your website or creating a separate mobile website.

Beware of unscrupulous SEO and web development companies! We are providing this link as a helpful tool but also as a means of protecting business owners from being taken advantage of by some SEO and web companies who are contacting business owners and telling them their website is not mobile friendly even though it is. We encourage business owners to check for themselves before moving ahead with upgrades or new development.

When Smart Business needed to upgrade its website, we were looking for more than a web development company. We needed a strategic partner who
could help us develop new ideas and a strategy for building a strong web presence to enhance our brand on a national level. We found that partner in
Veridean Technologies and Tom Jensen. Toms years of real-world media experience provide a unique perspective that other web development companies
simply cannot offer. We have been extremely pleased with our results so far and look forward to working with Tom to continue enhancing our Internet strategy.

The reason we selected Veridean to build and host our website was their vast experience in the publishing field. They developed our site with future growth in mind. We aren't currently able to take advantage of all options available to us right now but we know those features are built into our site. Without their knowledge base in publishing they couldn't have done that for us. We are also extremely pleased with how responsive Veridean is to any requests we make. The best thing I can say is that they feel like part of our team, I can't say that about many other vendors.
