As Google gets ready to move all websites over to mobile-first indexing, Google confirms 70% of sites have already made the shift.
The remaining 30% will be moved to mobile-first indexing by September at the most recent, as Google says that is when all websites will be formally exchanged over.
Between now and September Google will keep on movie websites to mobile-first indexing as they become prepared.
A definite sign that your site has been moved to mobile-first indexing is an expansion in Googlebot’s crawling, especially from the mobile user-agent.
You can also check in Search Console, where a site’s mobile-first indexing status is appeared on the settings page just as in the URL inspection tool.
Google’s guidance with regard to optimizing a site for mobile-first indexing continues as before.
Some important things to look out for when optimizing for mobile-first indexing are:
Google’s URL testing tool permits site proprietors to easily check both the desktop and mobile versions of a page. So you can guarantee Google (and visitors) can see identical content on desktop and mobile.
Google specifically recommends not using separate mobile URLs (also called “m-spot”) because they can cause “issues and confusion” for search engines and users. The highest quality level for mobile-first indexing is responsive website design.
