Mobile First Web Design

In the past few weeks I have been getting more of these notifications from Google Webmaster Tools about any sites I have that are not mobile responsive. They are basically letting me know that "these pages will not be seen as mobile-friendly by Google Search, and will therefore be displayed and ranked appropriately for smartphone users."

With more traffic coming from mobile devices, web developers will now start building sites that are mobile friendly first. Otherwise they can expect large drops in mobile traffic.

As for sites that are not mobile responsive, like my site here. Now is the time to upgrade. I recently made a vanilla forums template with bootstrap which is good place to start.

Most of my sites are already mobile responsive, I am going be leaving some as non-mobile responsive just for testing purposes so I can determine how much these will affect a sites traffic and ranking.
