Google have just rolled out the Mobile friendly algorithm with a set of FAQ’s for better clarity.

What kind of impact did the April 21st, 2015 Mobile friendly update are you seeing in your mobile traffic. Of course there may not be any change in the Desktop and tablet searches but we are noticing changes already on the mobile traffic.

Here is a list of important Frequently Asked Questions published by Google

No, certainly not. This mobile update has no effect on searches from tablets or desktops. However It affects searches from mobile devices across all languages and locations.

It’s a page-level change. For instance, if ten of your site’s pages are mobile-friendly, but the rest of your pages aren’t, only the ten mobile-friendly pages can be positively impacted. That being said the other pages may be negatively impacted if they were ranking for mobile searches earlier.

While the mobile-friendly change is important, we still use a variety of signals to rank search results. The intent of the search query is still a very strong signal -- so even if a page with high quality content is not mobile-friendly, it could still rank high if it has great content for the query.

First, keep in mind that we support three mobile configurations and that your website doesn't have to be responsive to be mobile-friendly. In response to your question, please be cautious about creating a “stripped down” version of your site. While the page may be formatted for mobile, if it doesn’t allow your visitors to easily complete their common tasks or have an overall smooth workflow, it may become frustrating to your visitors and perhaps not worth the effort. Should a temporary mobile site be created, once the RWD is live, be sure to move the site properly. For example, update all links so they no longer reference the separate mobile URLs and 301 redirect mobile URLs to their corresponding RWD version.
