How to check if your website is mobile-optimized?
Last week, I touched on the result of not having a mobile-optimized website which is it will affect ranking on Google. And that might in turn bring less visitors and less sales. This week I received an email notifying me one of my websites is not mobile optimized. Not FirstPage website. It was a website built in 2009.
I will like to give a few tips on checking if your website is mobile-optimized.
How do you check if your website is mobile-optimized?
Although there are free sites that enable you to check, determining whether the design is mobile-friendly or not is usually just a matter of ease of usability.
1. Did you find yourself zooming in on the screen to read anything at all?
–> Mobile optimized sites do not need you to adjust screen size for text or photos to be legible.
2. Do you miss-click on their links and buttons a lot?
–> Mobile-optimized buttons and links are made the right size for huge and small fingers.
3. Another hint: Is their website built before 2010? If it is, it is most likely not mobile-optimized.
–> Google only emphasized on mobile-friendly websites around 2010.
Now that you have learn this new skill, do a favour for your friends, and help them check too.
If you find that your friend’s websites are not mobile-optimized, refer them to FirstPage. We can help. Converting an existing website to a mobile-optimized one usually cost lesser than building a brand new website, but will bring about tremendous benefits.
