D-listed for not having a mobile site? Nope! Check it out. 
With all the uproarious posts about mobile friendliness going 'round I thought I'd chime in to fight against unnecessary drama and not-cool-marketing. 

See, big changes tend to bring out bad behavior from certain companies who wish to capitalize off of people's fear and lack of understanding. Today someone shared with me a good example of naughty behavior. I'm looking at you +GTxcel

First:
+ No, Google won't remove your website from search if you're not mobile friendly this month. Your email to who knows how many people was a flat out lie. This is not "marketing". 
+ From GTxcel's blog "there is a strong possibility you will be penalized in desktop results as well." >> this is false. The update affects mobile queries and isn't a penalty at all; it's just bubbling up sites that are more likely to have a better user-experience. 
+ When working to become mobile friendly, you have three options: responsive, dynamic serving or separate URLs. Not just responsive.

Second: It is a big shift that's coming - but not one that requires this kind of behavior. There are great opportunities for everyone out there to do better and create good experiences for users regardless of device. So be cool. Market nicely.

New Webmaster Tools! #dork  

Post has shared content
Pretty excited about this tool! #WebmasterNews  
#WebmasterNews: You can now use Change of Address in Webmaster Tools to move between subdomains, not just root domains.

For example, you can now move from foo.example.com to bar.example.net and any combination of domains/subdomains. Learn how in our help center article: http://goo.gl/5M7xab

If you’re moving sites, make sure to read our detailed site-moving guide. If you're moving between different hosts, it’s considered a site move with URL changes. See http://goo.gl/C7LLpK for details.

Happy moving!
