Mobilegeddon: Most Indian Government Websites Fail Google's Mobile Friendly Test

Google is rolling out a new mobile-focused search algorithm today, which favours sites that are mobile optimised and demotes those that are not on the search engine.

The new rating system is being billed by search experts as ‘Mobilegeddon,’ as Google announced that it will have a significant impact on the search results on mobile searches in all languages worldwide.

Search engine rankings are a crucial source of traffic for internet businesses, and rankings on Google, the world's most popular search engine are especially so.

We tested out 10 Indian government run websites on Google’s Mobile Friendly test tool, released in February this year. Only two of them passed the test.
