Google has said that its algorithms now use mobile-first indexing for over half of the pages shown in search results globally.

Google introduced mobile-first indexing about two years ago as it found that an increasing number of people were searching on Google using a smartphone.

This marked an important shift in its indexing as Google’s ranking systems earlier typically looked at the desktop version of a page’s content to evaluate its relevance to the user.

But with most people using mobile devices to search Google, the company announced that its algorithms will eventually primarily use the mobile version of a site’s content to rank pages from that site, to understand structured data, and to show snippets from those pages in its results.

“In general, we move sites to mobile-first indexing when our tests assure us that they’re ready,” John Mueller of Google Switzerland wrote in a blog post on Wednesday.

“When we move sites over, we notify the site owner through a message in Search Console,” Mueller added.

Google has finally added the feature on Gmail to send email as attachments without needing to download them first.

“We’ve heard from you that there are situations where attaching emails makes more sense than forwarding separate emails, like wanting to forward multiple messages related to a single topic. With this new functionality, you can do exactly that. Sending emails as attachments allows you to write a summary email message to your recipients, and attach the set of supporting emails that recipients can directly open in their mail client,” said Google in a blog post,” the company added,” the company said in a statement on Monday.

As soon as the feature arrives, a new “Forward as attachment” option in the three-dot menu will appear.

Users can either use the attach button when drafting a new email or can select multiple emails, and find the option of “Forward as attachment” in the three-dot menu.

Additionally, there is no need to create a brand new thread for replying to an email, as well. Just pop out the draft window when replying to someone, then drag and drop emails to it like a user would do while creating a new draft entirely.

The feature will be rolling out to all G suite editions gradually within the next month.
