Maybe you should consider upgrading to SMF 2.1. as it is responsive.
Let me see the effect that Google will have on my mobile responsive websites .
Fingers crossed!

Edit: Please do Google ranked your Wedge website as 'Awsome' or is it just a joke??

Most people got the original blog article wrong:

http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.de/2015/02/finding-more-mobile-friendly-search.html

Desktop users won't see a change.

I, for one, don't recommend to "optimize for Google". Who cares if your page looks awesome on a "mobile device" when its contents suck?

Wedge was built as a mobile-friendly forum system from the get-go, because that's mostly how I access my forums, so, well... I guess it made sense to do it, didn't it?

Only, I'm not too happy with Google's changes, because it's forced some websites I regularly visit to cook up a quick and dirty mobile version, some of which can't be gotten out of (even with the "desktop mode" option disabled, meaning it's doing browser sniffing, tsk!), and I really preferred their desktop versions. I just want to say, screw this!

Not a big fan of Elk's mobile themes, either, but that problem has been there for years. Mostly their persistent icons are not very intuitive. If they could replace them with a hamburger menu, like Wedge does, that'd be better. What? They're competitors? Who cares... SMF wins anyway. More exactly, conservatism wins. -_-

As a PHP developer, I'd recommend you to consider using the @viewport CSS query, so you can choose different styles according to the "viewport width" (which mostly equals the mobile device resolution).
