The traditional way of indexing of website is based on Desktop, but these days, Google is trying to introduce mobile first indexing to give a new experience to its users.

What is Google Mobile First Index?

Recent studies claim that more users are accessing the internet through their smartphones more than regular desktop users. It is indeed due to the increase in the availability of smartphones at cheaper rates with fast internet connectivity. Anyway, with the increase in mobile usage, it has prompted Google to introduce the search page indexing in mobile platforms first, to give more importance to the mobile content and experience.

Mobile first indexing is nothing but indexing and ranking website based on the mobile experience and mobile, unlike the traditional desktop content. Mobile first indexing will not ultimately affect the desktop site rankings, but it considers mobile expertise before desktop experience while ranking. This system is more likely if the desktop website and mobile website gives a different experience and provide different content.

How Mobile First Index affects SEO results?

As mentioned, Mobile First Index will not affect any website that has the same content and experience on both desktop and mobile versions, since the algorithm works in such a way that it will consider the mobile content first, then the website with the same and greatly designed content on both desktop and mobile will be ranked higher.
