Google Makes Another Mobile Friendly Ranking Update in May

The search giant announced another change in the ranking of mobile results on March 16.

Google announced today a new change to the mobile-friendly search ranking. Google started using mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal on mobile searches last year.

Google also says in the announcement that the intent of the search query is still a very strong signal. Meaning that even if a page with high quality content is not mobile-friendly, it could still rank well if it has great, relevant content. This is weakens again the above statement.
