Hi everyone, hope you all had a great and productive week! Recently, you may have received a notification email from Google Webmaster Tools about your site’s mobile friendliness. If you have not (yet) received one, it’s probably because your site is already mobile responsive/friendly or it is underway. IN any event, it seems that Google is now telling everyone to fix their site’s mobile friendliness, or prepare for a downward trend of organic traffic soon enough.
To make things easier for you, Google has whole of pages devoted solely for mobile friendliness. This page for instance say…
There are many ways to manage your website’s content. Some site owners completely build their own website from scratch. Others may use an existing software package from a company like WordPress, Drupal, or Joomla, which can provide a theme, design, and templates. When using existing website software, the site owner doesn’t build the whole site by creating code, style sheets and scripts, but only provides the content (such as photos, images, and text).
So in this page, you are given a whole lot of information on how to make your website mobile friendly. They even have a Mobile-Friendly Test tool, where you may find it particularly helpful. Simply enter a URL, and Google will analyze it and report if it is (or not) mobile-friendly.
Well now that you know that it is a big deal, what are you going to do about it?
