    Quote from Google:

    To make our results more useful, we’ve begun experiments to make our index mobile-first. Although our search index will continue to be a single index of websites and apps, our algorithms will eventually primarily use the mobile version of a site’s content to rank pages from that site

    They might change their minds, of course. But worth being aware of.

    Sounds like it's time for HubPages to make its mobile view a bit more sophisticated

    They need to get a drive on with full width capsules. The automatic rearrangement of half width capsules messes up pages badly.

      That would be a poor solution because it misses the opportunity to present a good experience to tablet, laptop and desktop users.

      Look at any blogging platform and they provide the opportunity to create an attractive layout for those, with pictures arranged attractively, and then it converts seamlessly to mobile.  The fact that HubPages can't manage what everyone else does is disappointing.
