The main requirements of a mobile friendly website are that there would be no scrolling left to right and all content falls below the previous section. Try viewing this page on a Mobile device and desktop PC to demonstrate.

Navigation menus will generally collapse on a mobile device so as to reduce the amount of scrolling required. Clicking the menu icon will open up the links menu vertically. Furthermore, the links on a mobile device must be sufficiently separated so it is easy to click with your figure so as not to click the wrong link. This is all about making for a good user experience.

A further requirement would be that there are no plugins in use on your website which may not be viewable on a mobile device. This could include, for example, Flash animations which cannot be viewed on Apple devices.
