Our Google SERP Mobile Placement Predictions of the last few years are about to come true….
If you don’t have a Google Approved Mobile Friendly site, the wrath of Google Mobile Search Placement is quickly approaching.
“Google is sending mass notifications to webmasters who has websites that are not mobile-friendly. These notifications contain the subject “fix mobile usability issues found on…” It then goes on to explain that these sites have critical mobile usability errors on 100% of the pages on the site and thus the pages will be “displayed and ranked appropriately for smartphone users.”
“These notifications are being sent via Google Webmaster Tools and via email. It is also being sent to sites that are simply not mobile friendly at all and typically, the webmasters know their sites are not mobile friendly. What we have here is Google reminding these webmasters their sites are not mobile-friendly and issuing a warning that the pages won’t rank well in mobile search.”
In addition to these warning emails, Google has already…

[Test Site for Mobile Friendly]
- given you a testing tool to see if your site scores well “IF” you are mobile friendly
[Test Site for Usability and Speed Scores]
