Google’s mobile-friendly algorithm is completely rolled out, but webpages may still see some small changes in the coming days as the search engine continues to index more pages according to Gary Illyes.
Illyes, a prominent Web Trends Analyst at Google, confirmed the news on Twitter this morning by saying “the algo is rolled out” when Barry Schwartz, News Editor for Search Engine Land, asked him on Twitter “is the Google Mobile algorithm fully rolled out?”
The algorithm is the most talked about shake-up from Google since the implementation of the Penguin and Panda algorithms, but the lion’s share of panic appears to be unwarranted as the majority of webmasters saw little to no changes in the wake of the latest rollout.
While Gary Illyes did confirm the algorithm is fully rolled out, he added one concession:
Not all pages were reindexed yet so they don’t have the new scores. Yet.
Also, there were a load of sites that became MF recently, so the actual number of sites affected decreased considerably.
Even with that caveat, the likelihood of significant changes coming in the next few days is unlikely.
