By now, almost everyone we talk to has heard about Google’s big switch in web searches this past April. Putting it as simply as possible, if your website isn’t deemed by Google to be “mobile friendly”, your site rankings can suffer on mobile devices.
This Is Important!
The number of mobile web searches has sky rocketed in the past few years. With most recent statistics having searches from mobile phones over taking searches on desktop computers. Having your website pushed down on mobile phone rankings can greatly and negatively impact your web traffic.
What are the criteria?
The criteria for being mobile friendly are based on three main components:
1) Font Size
2) Links position relative to each other
3) Mobile Viewport
Don't worry if you're not 100 percent sure what these criteria mean. Unless you are in the same business that we are, it is not your job to know everything about the internet. Thats what we're here for.
How do I fix my website?
So Google’s mobile friendly tester said that your website isn’t mobile friendly. Now what? Well you can try to make your current site responsive, or you can have a mobile only site design (generally m.yourdomain.com). Or you can have your site redesigned from the ground up to be fully responsive and meet all of Google’s criteria.
