Google Mobile Resource Center
From the icXadvisor
Google is now lowering the page rank of websites that are not optimized for use on smartphones (important: tablets are unaffected by this change). In some cases, even sites that appear to be smartphone-friendly may still be penalized in the search rankings if they do not meet specific criteria.
Don't wait for your site's rankings (along with your traffic) to plummet… read our white paper to better understand the issue – and more importantly – what you can do about it.

The Google Mobile Friendly Test Tool
Google has created an online testing tool that you can use to see if your site is mobile-friendly in the eyes of Google. Below are examples of what you will see if your site passes – or doesn't pass – this basic text:
If you thought your website would pass and it does not, you may need to access your Google Webmaster Tools account to diagnose the problem in more detail. For more firms, this level of analysis will require getting assistance for your web developer or consultant.
Even passing the test above does not guarantee that your website is actually INDEXED by Google as being mobile-friendly! Be sure to check results linking back to your website from a mobile device to confirm that they bear the "mobile-friendly" label. If they do not, you must pursue steps to get your site re-indexed as quickly as possible.
