Google has begun the process to rank website pages using a mobile first search index. Currently Google began with a handful of websites. It says it wants to test a few websites before ramping up to extend the index to cover more sites. The changes are now being monitored closely by a search team.
Google had announced this major change, just over a year ago when it said it wanted to change the way its search index will rank sites: it will go mobile-first. As the company explained at the time, Google’s algorithms will eventually essentially use the mobile version of a website’s content to rank its pages. The reason for this as explained by Google is that “most people” today are searching Google from mobile. Thus the goal with the change to a mobile-first index has to do with how people access the web today, mostly with their phones.
Google also released a ‘how to’ guide for websites. Following this guide, websites can know how to get their sites ready for mobile-first indexing.
The company also said that pages that already take advantage of responsive web design and implement dynamic serving don’t usually have to do anything to be ready.
Soon the change will take place over all websites.
