Google Shows Mobile-friendly Websites

Google is at it again.

For the second time this year, they’ve announced you’ll be rewarded for having a mobile-friendly website.

On Tuesday, Google said they’re adding a mobile-friendly label to their mobile search results. 

In other words, mobile searchers can tell if your site is mobile-friendly before they click on it.
