Ranking Changes for Non-"Mobile-Friendly" Sites

As of today, the main directory page appears to fail the Google mobile-friendly test.

Per this page, rankings will change April 21, 2015 to downgrade non-mobile-friendly sites, if there are mobile-friendly results that can be elevated.

It used to be that content was king at Google. Now that 60% of their overall traffic comes from mobile, they also are going to emphasize the mobile experience.

Will this matter to Elsmar?

This Google page addresses mobile-friendliness for vBulletin.
We'll have to check this after the migration to Xenforo software, however a few months ago Google did email me that was being included in their "mobile friendly index" FWIW. It still fails their test, however.
