But what is Mobile-friendly label?

2 years back on November 18,2014, Google announced  “Mobile-friendly” labels.

This Google is a Google blog image which shows the "Mobile Friendly"  label 


Why this change?

Nowadays, nearly 80% of the websites are mobile friendly. And on Tuesday, August 23, 2016 Google has decided to remove the label, in spite of the fact that the mobile-friendly criteria will continue to be a ranking signal.

According to this update, when a user searches for a query, he will receive the best answer, irrespective of the device he uses (whether Desktop, Mobile or Tablet).

With the removal of the Mobile-friendly label, Google ensures that the mobile search result shows the best results.

Another good news is that Google continues to provide the Mobile Usability Report in the Search Console and the Mobile-friendly Test to help webmasters test the effect of the mobile-friendly factor for their website.
This helps for both who wish to achieve first-page rankings and those who want to maintain the ranking.
