Google is Moving to Mobile-First Indexing

We’ve said it time and time again; it’s never been more important to ensure that your website is performing well πŸ“Š on mobile devices. β €
β €
Given that the majority of web traffic comes from mobile devices, πŸ“² you could be losing out on half of your potential conversion opportunities by not optimizing for mobile.β €
β €
This is so critical, we have seen the web and UX design trends move to a “Mobile First” πŸ₯‡ philosophy where the mobile site and experience take priority over the desktop site. β €
β €
Google recently announced that they will be moving to “Mobile-First Indexing” πŸ“± within the next six months to a year. They’re also sending out emails to alert search console users of mobile-first indexing issues detected on your website. β €
β €
This means, Google’s crawl bot πŸ€– will index the mobile version of your website before the desktop site and compare the two. If your mobile site is missing content or functionalities your desktop site has, it will raise a red flag.β €
