This was the reason I had to have mine redesigned and re-launched earlier this year when I really could have done without the upheaval and cost just a few short years since the last re-design and makeover. Unfortunately the same as most others from my generation and older I am totally in the hands of others in these matters so have to pay others their silly rates.

In any case tablets have an option in their browsers (even crappo Kindle Silk) to access the desktop site which should enable any even beginner user to overcome any problems. I've not heard about this Googlegeddon but there has been a move towards standardising sites over the last few years to be compatible with any access method. And Google did something similar a while back with franchised out gmail program setups removing them from other providers. Virgin Media tried to write their own to replace it and it's a total botch. No surprises there.

I've had a look at your website with my tablets (Kindle and Nexus 9) on mobile view setting and a number of different browswers and I don't think you should have any problems. As others have remarked anyway this problem is all about search engine ratings rather than anything else. My only comments would be to echo others and say that, given your site is fairly simple in the first place (nothing wrong with that, far from it) you'd be better off and a lot cheaper with Wordpress or something similar.

The TFF and all it's members have been instrumental in bringing me to where I am today in 'traditional angling' ... which is still a 'complete novice' despite what my posting rating might suggest ... that just supports the theory that I talk too much ... but only when I feel comfortable, as I have and do here.

Set it up as a page on Facebook Mal, it's free, easy to edit and you can se it so it can be seen but only you can add things to it. The reason these web hosts are doing this is because they are loosing revenue to Facebook and other social media which is free to the user
