On Mobile-friendly Becoming a Search Ranking Factor on 4/21 - Q&A Hangout With Google's John Mueller

This morning's meeting with John Mueller has a trove of answers & recommendations regarding Google's big announcement that (, Starting April 21, we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal, meaning more #mobilefriendly  sites in search results.

So here I've time stamped the Q&A's on this topic:
0:25   John announces mobile-friendliness is becoming a ranking factor.

0:55   Mobile-friendly by Default a presentation
          by John Mueller, Google Feb 27, 2015

9:22   If a site is not mobfr (my mobile-friendly abbr.) what are Google's suggestions.

10:50   Is mobfr ranking going to start immediately on announced date, or will it be a rollout over a period of time?

11:59   When you rollout the update, are nonmobile-friendly sites going to drop down, or will we still see these ranking in higher positions?

31:25   John's giggle that's fun to click replays. :D

Here I managed to squeeze in a few minutes for my own questions on the mobfr ranking changes (Yes, please excuse my cold. LOL.) :

44:40   Will mobile search results now become significantly different from regular search, or will this change affect all platforms?

45:24   Was there significant restructuring needed to separate mobile search results rankings from desktop search?

46:18  Will mobile search specifically be looking just to surface mobfr content, or will it also be looking to demote non-mobfr?

47:32   Are the factors listed in our WMT going to be the specific factors affecting our ranking, or is that just as a notification, something that operates entirely separately?

48:44   So it would be safe to assume the WMT data that we're seeing, is the content that is being used for that ranking?

49:33   Of the specific WMT ranking factors, which would you say are most important that they will more strongly affect these changes?

50:54   Will users reaction within mobile be playing strong on results?

51:50   from Mihai, is the affect mobile ranking factors give to mobfr websites simply black & white, or is it degrees, like depending on scores?

53:20   Would it be a problem if interstitials show up a minute, or so later, or do these have to be shown immediately?

56:53   On behalf of another user, I ask a question regarding an interesting search result [allegedly] seen on mobile, where certain mobile results are preceeded by a red Slow label. Here is that image   which appears to show Google experimenting with labeling slow loading results with a bold red tag.

If you find your #content duplicated, you can huff and puff and hire a hitman and whatever you want, if you don’t have #copyright for it. Here's why you should always ask for copyright when buying content. 
Before the internet used to exist, it was easier to store your ideas. You were writing them down on pieces of papers, journals, napkins, book corners and so on. You
