Gary Illyes from Google spoke during SMX West yesterday about a arriving mobile initial index that is now being tested. One thing he pronounced is that they are aiming for a “Quality Neutral” launch.
What does “Quality Neutral” mean? It means Google doesn’t devise to launch it until they feel a hunt formula will not be negatively impacted by a change to a mobile initial index. Instead, they wish to safeguard that a formula are a same peculiarity as a desktop results, or potentially better, before they wish to launch it.
There are many reasons because switching to a mobile initial index is a bit trickier. For example, people don’t couple as plainly on a mobile web as they do on a desktop web, menaing there is a intensity detriment for some ranking signals. Some sites lift their schema from a mobile chronicle in sequence to revoke a page bucket time. And some m. sites are merely shells of what is accessible on desktop – possibly in terms of pages or content, and those sites could be exceedingly impacted by a switch.
For some-more on a arriving changes, greatfully see the Google Mobile First Index Guide.
