Starting 21 April 2015, Google will be expanding the use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal.
This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in the Google search results. Users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimized for all their devices, including mobile phones.

With Google search on mobile devices, users should get the most relevant and timely results, no matter if the information lives on mobile-friendly web pages or apps. More people use mobile devices to access the internet, so our algorithms have to adapt to these usage patterns.
