GOOGLE GOES MOBILE FRIENDLY; TEMPEST IS READY
On April 21, Google began boosting the search ranking of mobile-friendly websites, moving up sites that are mobile optimized and penalizing desktop-only sites. Of course, all Tempest sites are designed to work beautifully on all devices, so Tempest customers were ready for this change. You can verify that Google considers your site mobile friendly with their Mobile-Friendly Test!

NEW GALLERY DESIGN
We’ve been working on a completely redesigned gallery experience on Tempest, and will be rolling it out soon! The new galleries feature an optional title and description to help you better showcase your images. Images are viewed in a new media viewer page, which counts a page view for each slide and enables increased monetization for galleries. We’re also introducing support for full size image viewing. Just click on an image, and it will expand to a full size view.
New Tempest brands to watch out for in May!
