Hi everyone!
Question for you all:
What's your opinion about the useful of the meta name="MobileOptimized"?
Could have any utility for responsive sites?
 I think it is totally obsolete
Curious to hear your thoughts! ;)

Some more info (from a detailed, mobile-relevant meta tag compilation I created some time ago; see http://goo.gl/xQWfgw ):

Legacy viewport meta tag - The screen width that the page has been optimized for.
(interpreted in Webkit as '<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">')

Exercising Googlebot (smartphone)

I had a need to better understand Googlebot (smartphone) capabilities as a result of some heavy development work being undertaken. I put together a series of tests targeting our favourite little crawler and came out with some very interesting results!
The content crawled by smartphone Googlebot-Mobile will be used primarily to improve the user experience on mobile search. For example, the new crawler may discover content specifically optimized to be browsed on smartphones as well as smartphone-specific redirects.

Google is Killing Branded Search Traffic From Mobile Phones: Here’s How to Fix The Issue

he localized Knowledge Graph is especially helpful for mobile users, especially when searching for branded queries. Branded search queries happen a lot on mobile because users typically hear a commercial, read something in a direct mail piece or article, or hear of a company through a recommendation of a friend… and it’s super easy just to pull the phone out of the pocket and search for more info.

In fact, users can get most of the the answers they need without having to visit the business’s website, which again can post a challenge to SEOs and companies that have conversions that are dependent upon branded organic traffic as part of the sales and lead funnel.

Notice that the link to the Website is the FINAL option of the three, giving the mobile user the option to call s the first CTA (hey, they’re on a phone!) … essentially, the Call button has become the mobile version of the link.

While the local Knowledge Graph is great for users, it’s not so great for businesses trying to measure the traffic they get from search engines, and in particular, from users of mobile search.
