Google is making significant changes to its search engine on the mobile side.
First, the company is removing “mobile-friendly” tags while searching Google on phones. While being mobile-friendly still helps sites rank high in search, the tag is being removed.
“We recently found that 85% of all pages in the mobile search results now meet this criteria and show the mobile-friendly label,” Google says. “To keep search results uncluttered, we’ll be removing the label, although the mobile-friendly criteria will continue to be a ranking signal.”
