MSyed added a comment to T125389: Google ranks wikipedia.org as 'not mobile friendly'.

@debt So I think what Google is complaining about is space around the bigger list of language links at the bottom. I dont think moving the "a free encyclopedia" text is going to help with google's ranking of us as a mobile friendly page.

I think for now a desktop only solution to this is fine. I can't think how we can accommodate this better on mobile without taking more space. And on mobile, space is even more precious.
