“ It looks like we’re also showing the wrong mobile indexing status for some sites in Search Console, which is a reporting issue on our side (and also not related to mobile-friendliness). I’m happy to check, but I assume your site is already in mobile-first indexing.”

How Can You Check This?

To check your indexing status, follow these steps:

1. Navigate to the Google Search console.

2. On the left sidebar, click on settings.

3. Now, check ‘Indexing Crawler’ under the About section.
