Google is going to boost the mobile-friendly algorithm in May

In Google’s official blog, Google announced an update to the mobile-friendly algorithm in May:

Today we’re announcing that beginning in May, we’ll start rolling out an update to mobile search results that increases the effect of the ranking signal to help our users find even more pages that are relevant and mobile-friendly.

If you’ve already made your site mobile-friendly, you will not be impacted by this update. If you need support with your mobile-friendly site, we recommend checking out the Mobile-Friendly Test and the Webmaster Mobile Guide, both of which provide guidance on how to improve your mobile site. And remember, the intent of the search query is still a very strong signal — so even if a page with high quality content is not mobile-friendly, it could still rank well if it has great, relevant content.

There are many more ranking signals

Google uses many more ranking signals than just the mobile-friendliness of a page. Use the Top 10 Optimizer in SEOprofiler to analyze and optimize the on-page and off-site factors that influence the rankings of your site. The website audit tool in SEOprofiler helps you to find critical technical errors that can have a negative influence on your rankings.
