Google: the importance of mobile usability

Mobile will be one of the ways Google ranks your website.

Google has added a new feature to its webmaster tools.  The mobile usability feature will check your websites mobile usability and will highlight any mobile-use issues found on your website, including small font size and clickable links that are too close to each other.

Google is also experimenting with icons which will indicate if a website is optimised or un-optimised for mobile.
