Google and smartphone websites
 
Can anyone shed any light on things I've heard about Google barring websites that don't work on smartphones from next year?

You heard right, Google is going to give websites that are not mobile friendly a lower ranking then websites that are mobile friendly. Not only that but they are also going to start to give warnings to people searching the internet when they come across a website that is not HTTPS secure. Letsencyrpt gives away free SSL if you need one.

The SLL warning is a load of nonsense. Why should all websites be secure? If they are not not gathering sensitive data there is absolutely no need for it and it slows down a websites download time. If you are gathering sensitive date eg. PayPal then i absolutely agree that it s
should be and of course already is

I think it comes down to Google not being able to know which sites collect sensitive information or do not. My only worry is that it will scare away those who are not tech savvy from sites that they otherwise may have benefitted from, otherwise a small warning that lets you know in the search itself may be a good idea in the long term, instead of looking at the url itself before clicking to see if https: is there.

Surely Google can easily detect if a website is gathering data has it will have the HTML code for a form on it? Isn't it the same principle that tells them whether a website is smartphone friendly, ie. they detect the relevant html or css?

Makes you wonder why they want websites to be SSL have they got an ulterior motive?

I see that Google have now started to roll out the Mobile first index

When it comes to building websites, I prefer Wix and Weebly. While Weebly is certainly a good website builder: easy to use, good costumer support etc., I found more cool looking templates at Wix.

Have to disagree Dennis ours was converted to Wordpress a few years ago and its far easier to use than Wix (weebly have haven't encountered)

Interesting that the original post is 2017 and here we are in 2019 and it still hasn't happened in terms of not listed in mobile searches
