Google recently announced on their blog that they will be targeting websites with bad mobile SEO. What exactly does that mean? It will mainly impact websites that have sneaky redirects from desktop websites to the mobile ones, especially if the mobile page is not relevant to the desktop one.
So how can you be sure your website will be safe? We recommend sticking to safe mobile design principles such as responsive web design. Responsive web design generally presents the same content to both dekstop and mobile users, but formatted specifically for each user.
Another way your website could be punished is if it loads slow. Many smartphones have limited data usage and speeds which a lot of website owners do not respect. There’s absolutely no reason to force mobile users to download images that are 2 MB in size.
