Google begins to roll out its mobile-first index

Google begins to roll out its mobile-first index

If you've got a really good mobile responsive site, with a better user experience than your desktop site, you'll probably benefit from Mobile First. For those following mobile first, there isn't a lot of new information, although there is some information for edge case setups. Users might encounter the mobile version of pages in the Search results and Google cached pages. This means when they view the mobile version of the same webpage, the information might not be in the same place, or visible at all. After more than a year and half of testing and experimentation, Google has finally announced that it has started rolling out its mobile-first indexing to more sites.

Google officially announced that it was migrating all websites to mobile-first indexing, meaning their indexing and ranking system will now use the mobile version of a website as opposed to the desktop version, the firm announced in a press release. Instead, this new boost stacks with that one, which means that a very mobile-friendly page that loads quickly and has a wealth of content presented to the user from the start has a high chance of being the first thing somebody on a phone sees when making a relevant search. The change should ensure that mobile devices users do not search for information on Google, only to discover that it is not visible when they follow a link in the search results using their mobile device.

Google said it took this decision because most of its search traffic comes from mobile devices and its search engine should also reflect the current situation.

In December 2017, Google said it had begun to transition a small handful of sites to the mobile-first index, but declined to say which properties had been made the move. "You may also see that the snippets in the Google Search results are now generated from the mobile version of your content, Google wrote in the blog post". You can also see the profile you provide to advertisers for targeted ads.

Due to the number of pages that are uploaded to the web every second of every day, you might spot changes in your search results within a short amount of time. Above all, Google will continue to value content, and then speed.
