    Google announced that after a year and a half of experimentation and testing, they have started migrating sites that follow the best practices for mobile-first indexing.

    To recap, Google crawling, indexing, and ranking systems has typically used the desktop version of a page’s content, which may cause issues for mobile searchers when that version is vastly different from the mobile version. Mobile-first indexing means that Google will use the mobile version of the page for indexing and ranking, to better help its – primarily mobile – users find what they’re looking for.

    Google continues to have one single index that they use for serving search results. They do not have a “mobile-first index” that’s separate from their main index. Historically, the desktop version was indexed, but increasingly, Google will be using the mobile versions of content.
