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. The background to this is that more than half of all search queries now come from mobile devices, predominantly smartphones. A classic desktop view cannot be displayed well on smartphones and would therefore appear far down in the index or not at all. As a result, websites may not only lose visitors using smartphones, but possibly desktop users as well. This change by Google could come into effect as early as April 2021. In this article, we explain how Google proceeds with indexing and why merchants are best prepared for that switch with ePages Now.
