  1. Good move by google. Almost 70% visitors are coming from mobiles and if your website is not mobile friendly than you are losing customers and will not be in profit for long. So update your website design to responsive for all devices.

  2. According to the Google PageSpeed Developers , standards recommends that the content above the fold on a mobile device loads in under 1 second and the entire page loads in under 2 seconds. This is typically not possible when loading a desktop website on a mobile device. When a user has to wait too long for a page to load, there’s an extremely high chance they will leave your site.
