Google’s mobile-first search index has rolled out to a handful of sites

Posted by @audreylaine, Dec 20, 2017

Earlier this week, Google began transitioning sites to its mobile-first index. Google says that “most people” today are searching Google from mobile, so their algorithms “will eventually primarily use the mobile version of a website’s content to rank its pages, to understand structured data, and to show snippets from the site in its search results.”

I want to do a little test here. If you’re reading this on your phone or tablet, please comment with the word “mobile.” If you’re reading this on your computer, please comment with the word “desktop.” Thanks!

Thank you for replying! And yes, I get it. I think small nonprofits will be hit the hardest because of the cost of redesigning your website. 🙁
