the highest traffic pages on our site do not lend themselves to mobile layout. the rest of the site is mobile friendly (and is tagged as such in google), but, after trying several ideas and receiving lots of user complaints, we've made an exception for these few popular pages. the pinch and zoom and drag of the phone browser work perfectly for the content of these pages - and furthermore our users want to keep it like that.
i do provide a slimmed down mobile version which is available with a click, but not many people use it.
so... our users want non-mobile but google is giving a ranking boost to mobile friendly. i don't know what to do. google's mantra of "always build for people" seems to backfire on me here ;)
anyone have any suggestions or is in a similar situation?
