This month Google made a major announcement on the future of “Search”, and its breaking further away from traditional Desktop Websites and Blogs and move to websites that are Mobile First.
Google made the official announcement in this article on the 4th November.
In the announcement Google stated :
To make our results more useful, we’ve begun experiments to make our index mobile-first. Although our search index will continue to be a single index of websites and apps, our algorithms will eventually primarily use the mobile version of a site’s content to rank pages from that site, to understand structured data, and to show snippets from those pages in our results. Of course, while our index will be built from mobile documents, we’re going to continue to build a great search experience for all users, whether they come from mobile or desktop devices.
This is a major change, and one website owners that are not mobile-first ready need to address as soon as possible.
