Google's mobile-first indexation: What merchants should know

by Sarah Böhm, 28.02.21

Google has already announced several times that they will switch their index to "mobile-first" or even "mobile-only". This means that only content  easily visible on mobile devices will be indexed, I.e. be prioritised in the search results.
