I am starting to see more and more mobile websites as I browse the web on my phone.
Honestly, I don't like very many of them. I think that most of them look like the webmaster stuffed a fat guy in a kiddie car and is buns are sticking out the back window and his love handles are sticking out the side windows.
It ain't pretty, but some eggheads at Google think... "this is good"... let's give this mobile site top visibility in the SERPs and demote every other site that has not jumped onto the "convert to mobile" bandwagon.
I think that "mobile friendly" often is not "user friendly".
Google can judge "mobile friendly" but looking at the code, but I think that it takes an average human to identify "user friendly".
So, what do you think is easier to navigate and use?
A) The average mobile website
B) The typical desktop site rendered on mobile that requires a couple pinches of the screen to bring into focus?
So, based upon that, do you think that Google is going to deliver a better user experience to people searching Google.com on a mobile device by demoting websites that are not "mobile friendly" ?
For me, I'd rather pinch the screen a few times.
