Mobile-First Indexing On The Horizon
John Mueller, a Webmaster Trends Analyst at Google, affirmed that Google is experimenting with Mobile-First Indexing. During a recent Google Webmaster hangout, Mueller explained that the best way to run the experiment is on active content.
The mobile-first indexing tests are allowing Google to analyze several key factors. Not only are they testing effects on users and ranking impact but also checking classifiers for debugging purposes.
Google’s new internal classifiers are pinpointing which sites have or do not have corresponding pages on mobile and desktop.
Roll out of mobile-first indexing will be gradual in order to repair and prepare websites for the switch.
