Google pushing mobile friendly websites

As noted earlier this year by Google, today’s the day we begin globally rolling out our mobile-friendly update. Google are boosting the ranking of mobile-friendly pages on mobile search results. Now searchers can more easily find high-quality and relevant results where text is readable without tapping or zooming, tap targets are spaced appropriately, and the page avoids unplayable content or horizontal scrolling.
