The mobile search index over Google will contain newer, fresher content, while Google’s version of the desktop index will be updated less frequently. Furthermore, in some cases, search results displayed over mobile will be completely different than those search results found on the desktop.
MOBILEGEDDON IS HERE
Mobilegeddon is when Google encouraged website owners to ready their websites for mobile. Google splitting its search index is also a sign of the company adapting to the paradigm shift of mobile search overtaking desktop search.

IS MOBILE SEARCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN DESKTOP SEARCH?
Google now gives more weight to mobile searching, so website owners should do the same. Therefore having a mobile-responsive version of your website is now more critical than ever.
MANAGING MOBILE-FRIENDLY SEARCHES
Mobile responsive websites also present an entirely new way of managing mobile-friendly searches. Before mobile, persons looking for home remodeling in their neighborhood would have typed a mobile-friendly search over Google, such as ‘Home repair service Virginia Beach.’
People are more likely to use their mobile assistants on mobile phones for searching. For example, ‘Ok Google Now’ or ‘Hey Siri, show me ‘Home repair service close to me.’ People will do voice searching differently from the keyboard-based search on mobile or desktop.
