This mobile-friendly algorithm doesn't seem to be run like Penguin where it is site-wide, impacting the whole entire site. It also doesn't appear to run in spurts or periodically like Penguin or the page-layout algorithm. So even if you do not have the time and resources to get your whole site mobile-friendly by April 21st, you should be able to do the most important pages first and work your way through the rest as soon as you can. The Google Mobile Algorithm Is Real-Time & On The Page Level [seroundtable.com]
...someone, somewhere at Google is playing around with the idea of using a separate mobile-friendly index for mobile results.
We're just reaching a new phase in search, imho: These include new ranking signals of knowledge-based trust, and the expansion of Google's Knowledge Graph into other sectors, and the diversification of desktop and smartphone SERPs, which, up until now, have been very similar...
the new Mobile Algo will be page based
Can you not use the mobile-friendly CMS on your current example-example site?
Redirect your mobile users to the new site or redirect all traffic to the new site?
Perhaps Google is already implementing this into their crawling algorithm
So now we have a date.
for the life of me I can't figure it out
1. Gray illyas reiterated that responsive design does not have a ranking
Google already has plans for this and there is a team already working on it. He isnít sure what stage they are at, so Google has nothing to announce about it at this time.

One Google test says I'm doing great, but the one that counts says I'm not
I'm using a Genesis theme on Wordpress,
because the link itself is too wide to display on a small phone, you get the "content wider than screen error" on the mobile test.
As an aside, did you know that you can add a DuckDuckGo "site search" box and you have the option of disabling ads on the search results page? Yeah, I'm switching my site search boxes to DDG. More privacy, less ads.
