Mobile Friendly Sites

Jan 14, 2015

Google has released a collection of new Mobile resources - one of which is a new 'Mobile-friendly' label that is included in the mobile search results for all sites that are eligible for it.

Here is Google's list of site requirements you'll have to meet in order to qualify for their 'Mobile-friendly' label:

  • Avoid software that is not common on mobile devices, like Flash.
  • Use text that is readable without zooming.
  • Size content to the screen so users don't have to scroll horizontally or zoom.
  • Place links far enough apart so that the correct one can be easily tapped.

To find out if your site qualifies for the 'Mobile-friendly' label, you can use Google's Mobile-Friendly Test. The tool will analyze if the page is mobile friendly and you'll either get a congratulations message (good) or a list of improvements you'll need to make.

Right now this label has already begun rolling out to sites that meet the above requirements without any further work by site owners.

We all know that more and more website traffic is being generated by mobile devices so it is important that your site works properly on them.  Having Google label your site as 'Mobile Friendly' will allow your visitors know that your site will work on their mobile device.
