- It's not a penalty, it's all about prioritization - Google says, "We’re boosting the ranking of mobile-friendly pages on mobile search results." That means your competitors' mobile-friendly websites will get a lift in organic search results over yours.
- It's a global application - Google states, "Affects search results in all languages globally." That means those often neglected distributor websites or localized microsites you setup to show a "perceived international presence" need some attention now.
- It's page-based so react iteratively if you have to - Google states, "Applies to individual pages, not entire websites." That could mean rolling out a responsive or mobile-friendly homepage since most of your traffic may end up there. You still have time as Google says it will take a few weeks to roll out.
- Test out your website's mobile-friendliness free - Google offers its own tool to help you here
- Get Responsive Web Design (RWD) Tips - Google offers a whole resource on where to start for converting that old website to the new and modern responsive web design methodology
