That means that your websites will be crawled by the Google “smartphone” bot more often, meaning that mobile-friendly sites are more important than ever. This blog post reviews these changes and how they could impact your site.
Websites Rankings will not be affected – Mobile-First Indexing
Google is assuring site owners that mobile-first indexing will not have an huge impact on rankings. This is simply a change to how content is gathered for Google’s index. In other words, a site that has been migrated to mobile-first indexing will not have an advantage over a site that has not yet been migrated.
It’s called “mobile-first” because it’s not a mobile-only index: for instance, if a site doesn’t have a mobile-friendly version, the desktop site can still be included in the index. But the lack of a mobile-friendly experience could impact negatively on the rankings of that site, and a website with a better mobile experience would potentially receive a rankings boost even for searchers on a desktop.
However, mobile-friendly content will generally be ranked higher in search results when the user is searching on a mobile device. This is a strategy that has been in place from 2015.

With mobile-first indexing, Google is like a a single library that is now beginning to replace print books (desktop pages) with ebooks (mobile pages). Over time, library will be mostly ebooks (mobile). But print books (desktop) will always remain part of the mix in the library.
Google will notify those messages through Google Search Console if the sites they manage have switched over to the new mobile-first indexing process.
They will send out these notifications that say “mobile=first indexing is enabled” for their site. It will look similar to the example above I’ve already posted that picture see below the First paragraph.
Site owners can expect to see significantly increased in crawl rates from the Googlebot for Smartphone. In addition, Google will also show the mobile version of pages in Search results and Google cached pages.”

Google’s change is only in the very earliest stages of testing, and is being implemented gradually to websites which Google considers to be “ready” enough for this change to have a minimal impact. Google is on your side, they are not trying to stir up the SEO world so we can hold off on panicking!
