Google’s latest announcement is that they are giving MORE preference to mobile friendly websites.
Google loves mobile and they want to ensure that all Google Searchers are getting the best possible experience on any device.
A webpage is eligible for the “mobile-friendly” label if it meets the following criteria, as detected in real time by Googlebot:
- Avoids software that is not common on mobile devices, like Flash
- Uses text that is readable without zooming
- Sizes content to the screen so users don’t have to scroll horizontally or zoom
- Places links for enough apart so that the correct one can be easily tapped
