Page speed is not a ranking factor (yet) in Google's mobile search algorithm but as the article says regardless of whether page speed is a signal for the mobile friendliness change or not, webmasters should always be looking at their page speed and trying to improve. #mobilesearch  
At Brighton SEO today, Gary Illyes, a Google Webmaster Trends Analyst, was talking about mobile and the upcoming mobile friendly ranking signal which will come into play on April 21st.  Many SEOs have been emphasizing page speed rather aggressively when it comes to ensuring sites are mobile friendly before the 21st. At SMX West earlier …

Assuming that's accurate - a properly responsive site will see benefits on mobile speed from the things necessary to make it fast on the desk top. In other words - one should focus on speed in general.

An important point to remember is that, even if speed is weighted as heavily on mobile (again, assuming that's accurate) it should be emphasized from a use perspective. If one's potential client comes to a site on a mobile phone, and gets frustrated because the site takes forever to load and then leaves the page without waiting, is it really fair to say that speed doesn't matter?

My fear is that many people will make their pages “mobile-friendly” and actually tank their engagement with poor experiences..  
Good insights here from +Ross Hudgens. Don't get so focused on checking the 'mobile-friendly' box that it adversely affects the most important aspect of your Website - the user experience.
With the announcement of Google’s Mobile Update coming on April 21st, there’s been a strong movement in the last few months to make our sites “mobile-friendly“. And no surprise, when Google says sites don’t have a good mobile experience are going to get a traffic hit, it gets people moving. However, I think the sudden announcement …

The donation page for the Ted Cruz for president campaign isn't fully encrypted, making it hard for users to tell if their credit card number will be safe.

Dr. Spencer Andersen is a knowledgeable, helpful professional. He provides treatments that treat the cause of the injuries, not just where there are symptoms. I recommend him for recovery from back and neck injuries and to improve your spine's health.

I highly recommend Red Rock Auto Sales. We were recently looking to sell a car and they paid a fair price for our vehicle, considerably more than what some other dealers were paying. Josh and Vic treat their customers with respect and value keeping customers happy and coming back. This is so refreshing in the automotive sales business!

We engaged with Portent for a PPC campaign through their 'PPC Essentials' program. Based on Portent's claims, description of services, customer reviews, and industry recognition we felt confident Portent's services would be useful in elevating the campaign's performance. We were sorely disappointed. After our agreement was finalized with the manager, we were assigned a specialist to our campaign. I monitored their activities on the account, and found the little work they performed was of poor quality. They set up new ad groups without extensions or mobile ads and their work was sloppy and near amateur. We terminated their services after only three weeks as a result. While they may say need more time to improve a campaign's performance, I'm not one for paying for low quality services. I would not recommend using the PPC Essentials plan. It appears to be geared towards taking advantage of the Portent name and spending minimal time and skill on small business owners AdWords accounts to maximize profits. My opinion in Portent as a company is seriously diminished.
