Google Loves Mobile
Last year we told you that Google was ranking Mobile friendly websites higher on search criteria.

If you listened and responded accordingly - then good for you - you won't be affected by Google's latest announcement that they are giving MORE weight to mobile friendliness that ever before.
If you didn't jump on the bandwagon and make your website more friendly to all devices, then you might need to leave the sandbox, because Google is not going to play with you.
Google loves mobile and they want to ensure that all Google Searchers are getting the best possible experience on any device. Time for all businesses to do the same.

A webpage is eligible for the "mobile-friendly" label if it meets the following criteria, as detected in real time by Googlebot:
- Avoids software that is not common on mobile devices, like Flash
- Uses text that is readable without zooming
- Sizes content to the screen so users don't have to scroll horizontally or zoom
- Places links for enough apart so that the correct one can be easily tapped
