Google’s move to mobile-first indexing is under way, but there’s still a lack of clarity in a number of areas.

Remember that with mobile-first, Google’s going to be primarily crawling and indexing the mobile version of your website, and using that to determine rankings.

“It’s like being back on dial-up…” That’s the standard complaint when a web page takes too long to load. Those early days of the web when we’d sit and stare at the modem are gone.

The chirrups and beeps have been replaced by superfast broadband, 4G - imminently 5G - and this speed of delivery means every second counts.

As such, it only makes sense to pit the two streaming app giants against one another to see who reigns supreme in terms of having a superior UX.
