Google to serve up search results just for mobile

Mobile and desktop Google queries will start to have differing results with more mobile-friendly sites being pushed up for mobile users.  Image

In the next few months, Google will start to serve up different search results for desktop and mobile queries because the company is going to begin indexing mobile websites differently.

Google has been toying with the idea of a segregated search index for desktop and mobile since last year, but the continued rise of mobile use may have been what convinced the company to go ahead with their plans, reports Engadget.


Gary Illyes, trends analyst for Google, made the assurance that there would still be a desktop index; however, it would not be as up-to-date as the mobile one.

It would seem that everything has been leading up to this moment as Google has already released features in the past that were meant to encourage site owners to make their domains more mobile-friendly. The most recent of these is the Accelerated Mobile Pages for the results page where users may choose the website with the fastest loading time.  Alfred Bayle
