Marketing Land has reported that Google’s mobile-first index may not be coming until 2018 at earliest.

The website has quoted Gary Illyes talking about it during SMX Advanced.

Illyes said: “We don’t have a timeline for the launch yet, We have some ideas for when this will launch, but it’s probably many quarters away. Our engineers’ timeline was initially end of 2017. Right now, we think more 2018.

We’re thinking about how we can make sure we only include in the mobile-first index sites that won’t be hurt by the mobile-first index. The longer time frame can be several years — maybe five years — before we reach an index that is only mobile-first”.
