Will Google drop my ranking if my website is not mobile friendly?

As of 21 April 2015, Google will lower search rankings for mobile-unfriendly websites in an effort to give users the most relevant and timely results, no matter if the information lives on mobile-friendly web pages or apps.

Mobile website with the following shortcomings could also take a hit in search results:

  • Redirecting all pages of a standard website to one home page on the mobile website.
  • Flash video instead of HTML5 video on mobile websites.
  • Slow page load speeds.


Take the mobile-friendly test.
