    Hello everyone, so I'm having this issue right now. one of my sites is ranking very well (3rd-4th, 1st page) on desktop search but on the mobile version, it's 30+ position. It's happening for the last 20-30 days. First I thought it's just google dancing and things will get adjusted soon. But nah passed already a month but no change. What am I doing wrong? maybe the theme, well I am using a free theme. is it can be the case or anything else? Really looking for some help at this point.
    Site age is around 4 months.

    according to google mobile-friendly test, the site is mobile optimized. The site is responsive and pretty much falls under today's standard of what we call a mobile-friendly site.

    no, no pop. no ads. just a clean site with 1200 words front page article and some filler article.

    Have you tried installing the amp plugin on your site? Or if your site isn't mobile friendly, or mobile compliant, or contains error for its mobile view, then surely, these would add up and decrease your rank in the process. Or get a template that is mobile friendly (everything and anything, which includes image optimization), and that will help increase the ranking in the process.
