Recently there has been an announcement from Google Webmaster blog about Mobile Friendly sites ranking. They have told that website with Good Mobile visibility and have had no issue with Mobile Friendly test will be ranked higher than other competitor website.

I think this a very great move made by Google Webmasters. Because, there has being tremendous growth in mobile users and still being counted. Hence website which doesn’t have mobile friendly layout will not have good impact on small browser, hence there might be distraction in mobile users.
