There has been considerable discussion on web developer groups like Search Engine Journal that identify many flaws and potential issues with Googlle’s tool and algorithm.  For example, what if you offer separate but similar mobile and full screen browser versions of your website and content?  Do you get de-ranked for your full screen version?

I also ran the google mobile friendly  test on Customer+Mobile and Tech+Mobile applications and both of those applications immediately passed the mobile test!

If your business or operations depends upon good Google SEO ranking of your website, you might be in for a wake up call or a surprise boost come April 21, 2015!
