Introducing Appticles API. Google Mobile SEO Ready. Heads up for .app domains.

As of today, we officially open access to our API. Through the API you’ll be able to serve custom content directly in your mobile web applications. Its purpose is to act as an intermediary between the applications, the content databases and other 3rd party APIs. The Appticles API consists of 3 main components or endpoints sets: Content, Social and Detection. The API is currently available for all plans (PLUS, PRO, VIP). Read more about it and start experimenting with it on your own mobile web application.

Starting April 21st, Google will penalize non-mobile sites. You’re safe with us! Google will use mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal, penalizing all sites that don’t have a mobile web strategy. This change will have a significant impact in Google’s mobile search results.

Here’s what you need to do to get ready for it:

  • If you’re WordPress based, download, install and activate the latest version of WP Mobile Pack (2.1.2)
  • If you have a different CMS (Drupal, Joomla or others) simply signup on Appticles and start with the FREE plan. Our mobile web applications are mobile SEO ready and you can have that setup immediately.
  • If you already use Appticles to power your mobile web applications, you don’t have to do anything. You’re already covered!
Google just paid $25 million for exclusive rights to the “.app” top-level web domain and although Google hasn’t announced specific plans for .app, it’s pretty easy to figure where it might fit into their business. Once purchasing .app domains will become publicly available for all the vendors, we’re going to include that as part of our premium offering.

Stay tuned!
