April 21st will be a big date to keep in mind for many website owners, as the mobile-friendly Google algorithm will be coming to town. But, if you’re a Google News publisher, you won’t have to worry about anything yet, at least when it comes to Google News search results ranking.
Stacie Chan, a Google News community manager, said that the Google News ranking team doesn’t have plan on implementing the mobile-friendly algorithm into the Google News results yet, in a Google+ hangout yesterday.
“As of now, Google News is not committed to making that change yet. We are always exploring because we think it is awesome that sites are trying to be more mobile friendly. I love that. And Google News is very well aware that search is doing that… We are definitely exploring that option as well but don’t have an exact timeline for that or even weather or not we will implement that.”
