Read about it now.

You need to get your site Mobile First ready, as being mobile friendly is just not enough. If you would like to discuss ways to become Mobile First, or check current status, please feel free to contact me.

If you would like to discuss ways Google is ignoring links, and ways to generate good quality back links, please feel free to contact me.
