    Google re-indexed every page as a mobile one. Even desktop users who click on the Google link are shown the mobile version. A major problem. Uninstalled.

    I haven't seen any of this.

    It's working perfectly for me.

    When i google my site using a desktop computer i see the results normally and i'm directed to the full content.

    And when i google on my old SonyEricsson k800i it shows my site on the same URLs and a small green icon next to the link telling that the site is mobile-friendly.

    When I do a search in google for a post title, the first search results is for the desktop version: example.com/post-name but the second result is for example.com/post-name?mobile=1 which is very upsetting. I'm not using a caching plugin. How can I remove the mobile links from appearing in desktop google searches?

    Make sure you're using canonical urls that point to the preferred version of the content - that's your pages way of saying what version should be indexed. Most SEO plugins let you change this easily. In addition to that you could disallow indexing of pages with the ?mobile=1 parameter, however, just getting the canonical url specified correctly should be sufficient in most cases. It can take a while before Google updates....best to also sign up for a google webmaster account and submit your sitemap.
