    Mobile first index

    Currently our website has a desktop version, and a mobile version. The mobile version is very basic and doesn't have hardly any of the content of the desktop version. So I am worried that when the mobile first index comes into place we will be negatively effected. Would it be better to turn off the mobile site at the moment until we get a responsive website made?

    Whilst a comprehensive mobile version would be better, it's better to have something there than nothing at all.
    I would leave it there and replace it with a responsive version (asap).

    I think responsive web design doing well for this and mobile-friendly website is good instead of a different version of the website for mobile. If you build the different website for mobile than it will double your work nothing else.

    Mobile site version you must keep and made the changes in the desktop design. You will lose effective points if you close or disable the mobile version.
