Are you Mobile-Friendly with Google?

How you could be failing Googles Mobile-Friendly test
Last Tuesday, Google announced it will be rolling out with a new “Mobile-Friendly” label – and what could lead you to some site updating.

In the next few weeks, you may notice while browsing on your mobile phone a “mobile-friendly” statement on your search results, a notice that will help recognize websites that are, well, mobile friendly and responsive.
Now, if you’re saying this doesn’t affect you, you might want to make sure your site is mobile-friendly here. And if you STILL don’t care, just be aware that mobile traffic is exceeding desktop traffic, and usually convert higher then desktop users. Now if you really still don’t care, maybe this article isn’t for you…
SO, how does a site fail a mobile-friendly test? We created this list with the Top 3 Most common reasons sites fail Google’s Mobile-Friendly test
1.) Links Too Close together
This could be a combination of items, most notably, your sites font size. Change that up, yo. You’re marketing to people on all sizes of devices, you want them to read your page. This doesn’t just affect us with fat thumbs, larger font size and correctly spaced links will ultimately encourage higher conversions and less painstakingly accurate taps of the screen for your visitors
2.) Content is wider than screen.
Having a responsive page is key in todays technologically savvy world. Have your landing page responsive to device types, and all of your data easily adaptable with screens. Google doesn’t care for wide-sites and don’t want users to be scrolling left-right-up-down-and diagonally on your page.
3.) Not having Mobile-Friendly Pages.
This seems to be a common mistake. When you check your site for mobile-friendly status, take into consideration that Google looks at one page only. That doesn’t include your “about us”, “blog”, and “services” pages and all of the miscellaneous pages in between. Make sure all of your individual pages don’t include tiny images, text, links, and buttons.
Thats it. You’re on your way to a mobile-friendly page friends!/
