Check your website with the Google Mobile Friendly Test

If you have a website for your business, you may have heard that Google has warned site owners that the next algorithm update may penalize sites that are not mobile friendly.

Not sure if your site is mobile friendly? In seconds you can check your website URL using the Mobile Friendly Test on Google’s Webmaster Tools. here is the link: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/

We actually tested Tweepler and even though our site looked fine on mobile devices, it came up as NOT mobile-friendly according to the Google test. We quickly adjusted to a new version of the site that met the criteria (by swicthing to a responsive mobile-friendly theme.) It took about 10 minutes but it may have saved our site from a drop in search result placement, so it was well worth it.

Check your site today.

    Good article. Most web developers today should provide mobile-friendly website development services as part of their overall website software installation. If upgrading your existing website keep in mind that mobile-friendly websites are just part of an overall web strategy. High rankings on search sites such as Google, Yahoo and others are a result of a multitude of configurable elements. Performance gains happen when everything comes together. That’s exactly the reason that any effective web strategy include web support on an on-going basis. Off-site links, on-site Search Engine Optimization and content quality, reviews, reputation management and many others should be part of your web strategy. Our services include “Free” design and development.
