As of April 21 2015, Google will expanded the use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal.
Mobile and tablet devices accounted for 44.4% of UK internet usage compared to 55.6% by desktop. For some websites in particular, it’s essential that the user experience of visiting the site on a mobile device is as clear and easy-to-use as visitors using a desktop computer.
