Test To See If Your Website Is Mobile Friendly For Google Ranking

Web Publishing 1 Comment on Test To See If Your Website Is Mobile Friendly For Google Ranking 55

Google recently implemented a new factor in the ranking of websites.  Their algorithms now try to determine if your site is mobile friendly and if it is not it will go against your ranking in Google Search.

The question you may then have is, “Is my site Mobile Ready?”, at least as far as Google is concerned.  Thankfully Google has provided a tool to tell you if it thinks your site is mobile ready or not.

Simply go to:

https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/

and then type in your website address.  If your site looks good you’ll get an “Awesome…” and if not it will tell you why you failed.

This may be a great tool to use to sell your boss or client on finally upgrading their 10 year old site.

I am Eli "the Computer Guy" and have been in the tech industry for approx. 20 years doing all kinds of odd projects. I started as an electronics tech in the US Army, worked in corporate IT during the IT Boom, was an individual consultant and grew my tech shop to have numerous full time employees and supported small business clients with computer repair/ server maintenance/ web development/ surveillance systems/ telephone systems until the great recession. After that I started creating video training on all the topics I know and now have a YouTube Channel with over 500K subscribers. I am the founder of GeekBrainDump.com and my plan is to create a tech "news" site that I would actually find useful if I was still in the server room.
