In short, here's what you need to know about the new ranking approach:

  • Mobile sites must allow the GoogleBot to crawl the mobile site 
  • All pages on the site need to be mobile-friendly (I.e. Viewport is set)  
  • Websites not properly optimized for mobile will be penalized and will be reduced in the ranking of mobile search results.
