Mobile Ranking Algorithm Won’t Affect Google News As Of Now


Webmasters are gearing up for the latest mobile-friendly algorithm scheduled for April 21, 2015. Google has already stressed on the parameters to be considered while labeling a site mobile friendly. The algorithm will impact almost 60% of mobile search queries but won’t affect Google news as of now.

Google’s Stacie Chan in a hangout responded to a webmaster’s question about algorithm’s impact on the Google now.  See what Stacie said:

As of now, Google News is not committed to making that change yet. We are always exploring because we think it is awesome that sites are trying to be more mobile friendly.

I love that. And Google News is very well aware that search is doing that… We are definitely exploring that option as well but don’t have an exact timeline for that or even whether or not we will implement that.
