The date has come and passed — yesterday (April 21, 2015) was the much-publicized deadline Google gave website owners to make their sites “mobile-friendly.” After that, they told us, sites that pass their mobile usability tests will be ranked higher in mobile searches than sites that don’t.
Simply put, if your site isn’t mobile-friendly, then it’s not going to rank high in search results on mobile devices — you’re going to be penalized. Need to check your site? Webpages can be tested for “mobile-friendliness” using the Mobile-Friendly Test.
If you still have questions about what this means for your site, check out Google’s “FAQs about the April 21st mobile-friendly update.”
