First it is always best to provide a working url so that we can view it and then give advice to why you are getting this.
Have you made your site RWD (mobile) friendly? have you used breakpoints? have you designed it with Layout Grids? have you designed around jQuery Mobile? if not then please read all the following but as mentioned above please provide a working url.
Responsive Web Design

The following is not commonly used anymore (See note in page regarding why)

Layout Grids

Layout Grids Part2
Advanced Layout Grid Features

Ok update found a link to your site in your profile. Although you are using WWB12 did you design and build with it or with a previous version?. Only asking on viewing the source it doesn't look like it has any breakpoints or is using layout grids. For it to be "Mobile Friendly" you will need to think about adding breakpoints or a redesign using layout grids.

Thanks for that Bacon Fries yes the site on my profile was first built over seven years ago and is mobile friendly. The small site that I used a template for and was built using WWB12 or 11 is http://www.southernautomatics.co.nz this is the one that keeps getting the note on Google and is not mobile friendly. Does this mean that I will have to build a new site altogether or can I modify what is there easily?

There are several ways to make your website mobile friendly.
In your case the easiest way is to add breakpoints, then you can keep your original layout and add variants for smaller screens.
Basically to make Google happy you will only have to add one breakpoints, for example: 480.

Thanks for that Pablo the thing I do not understand is why the older sites I have running are ok and this small new one is not I will try a 480 break point.

Without seeing your other website it will be difficultly you tell you what the difference is.
It may be related to the page width, or you may have added custom code.

To be trueful with you the url/link to your site in profile isn't "mobile friendly" at all.. visit the following "Google" search and at the top you can enter your site url to see if it is "mobile friendly" or not I have just ran the test and the results came back as not being.

Both websites have custom code...

On http://www.southernautomatics.co.nz, you have add custom code between the head tags. However this code ins invalid/incomplete. So maybe that is what Google complains about?

Thanks for the help I will look at these things I have set the break point to default and that seems to have helped the southern site.
