Mobile Marketing – “The mobile first web design philosophy has been bandied around now for some years. When we first started to hear about it probably back in about 2009 or so, possibly a bit earlier I think its fair to say that many people were at first sceptical about the approach. One such person was of course Luke Wroblewski, author of Mobile First, and who in fact claims to have been the one who first coined the term.”

After all, that keeps in perfect alignment with the company’s ethos – Google has always strove to be a user-first search engine, and so, now user’s are increasingly using their mobiles first to search the internet, then it is the mobile-first web pages that will be thus climbing the rankings.
