It’s only a month before Google’s mobile-friendly website algorithm boost is launched. That gives website owners just a matter of weeks to get things sorted out to avoid being pushed down the search engine’s result pages. Google has begun issuing warnings to sites that are not yet mobile friendly but the warning will only be shown directly on the Google search results pages when Google knows that the person searching is the owner of the site and the warning will only be visible to the site owner.
The search results will show a short snippet warning the owner that the site isn’t mobile-friendly and share a link to the Google help page to give directions on where to make the necessary improvements.
Google has confirmed that this is a current experiment they are trying out in a bid to improve mobile-friendliness.
@jenstar At the moment it’s just those, but I think it’s a really neat experiment. Which others should we add?
