Why you should be serious about having a mobile friendly website, and how to test your website.
In recent posts I’ve been writing a lot about the critical changes Google has made to its search engine, and how this will impact your website.
If you haven’t already, head over to my other post to read more about why having a mobile friendly website is so important.
In short: Google is now using mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This means that Google will penalize your website if it isn’t mobile friendly. It’s a significant change in the way Google ranks your website in search results, and not having a mobile friendly website means you’re on the wrong side of the fence.
How To Check If Your Website Is Mobile Friendly
It’s never been more important to perform a health check of your website. Does it meet the new standards Google have set for mobile-friendliness?
Luckily it’s easy to find out with just a couple of clicks, and you don’t even need any technical knowledge to perform the test. Just head over to the test page, fill in the URL to your website – and click Analyze.TEST YOUR WEBSITE AT GOOGLE
If your website displays any mobile usability errors, Google is penalizing your website with lower ranking in search results.
This could turn your website almost invisible; you will lose new client leads, it will result in a loss of revenue, and it will frustrate your current clients. Unless you take action to make your website mobile friendly now, this problem will persist until you do something about it – and it will only get worse.
