Mobile Website – Viewing Your Website on a Smart Phone
Mobile phones have already dramatically affected how people access and view your website. Local mobile searches now exceed desktop mobile searches, and the number of people treating their smartphones as their main internet device continues to grow.
Is Your Website Mobile Friendly?
Ask yourself these simple questions:
- Does your website automatically adjust for correct display on a mobile phone? (Try it and see.)
- Is Google going to classify your website (and list it in every one of their search results) as “mobile friendly”? (Question 1 should answer this!)
This website is ‘mobile friendly’.
If you are viewing this on a mobile phone, you already see it in action. If you are visiting from a normal web browser, just narrow the browser page from the right and you’ll see how it automatically adjusts for your viewing.
Your website needs to work on every device – every time someone looks at it.
Google Is Now Using “Mobile-Friendliness” as a Ranking Factor
In response to this dramatic increase in mobile use, Google has just announced they are about to start using “mobile friendliness” as a significant search ranking factor. This is important to you – if your website isn’t what Google defines as “mobile friendly”, your rankings are about to suffer.
Will Google Think You Have a Mobile Website?
A Mobile Website means Google needs to see your website as “mobile friendly.”
Mobile friendliness means most of the following “responsive design” characteristics must automatically adjust when your website is viewed on a mobile device:
- Hierarchy (order) of things shown
- Navigation (selectors and menus)
- Fonts and Sizes
- Layout (columns, etc.)
- Image Scaling and Size
- Padding (spacing left, right, and horizontally)
- Visibility: Hiding certain content
