Google Begins Mobile-first Indexing of Websites

Published on 12/22/2017

I was using the original Omega wordpress theme by Themehall. When I checked if it looks great on mobile via an online checker, it was rendered low on mobile-friendliness.

After reading some tutorials about how to make a website more mobile-friendly, I was tempted to change theme, as Omega wordpress theme is not that mobile friendly.

But since I really like the Omega theme, I like the fonts used and the size of the fonts in content, I did not want to discard it for another theme.

So, what I did is.. I checked for a way to make the website look more mobile-friendly without changing theme. Through my research, I found out that by using a certain plugin, you can INDEED make your site mobile-friendly without changing theme!

It's like tricking the viewer by rendering a different look of the website, on mobile devices. It's like displaying a green colored website on mobile devices when in fact it looks red in desktop computers.\

Today, with this announcement from Google, I am afraid that practice is no longer applicable.

We can no longer trick Google, and doing so, will only do harm on your site than good.

With this new trend, I think.. that instead of trying to trick Google, it would be better if we just choose a theme that's mobile-friendly right from the start.

For this new policy from Google, to start indexing of sites not in desktop but in mobile, times are changing.

It's good to be updated, especially if you value search engine optimization.
