Dear EPiServer site owners,

In the upcoming sprint iteration (Apr 27- May 15) we are targeting all umassmed.edu websites to become mobile friendly. According to Google – all websites must be mobile friendly. This will help with search engine optimization and overall rank increase. Google will favor pages that are mobile-friendly and penalize pages that are not. 

What it means to you? Better SEO and no Google penalty, but also might delay some of the work in process.

This is why its very important to us to communicate this initiative and thank you for the patience if any work delays will occur. We will be back in full capacity after completing this mobile-friendly initiative.

Please feel free to contact us at thewolfpack@umassmed.edu if you have any questions
