After all the factors which go into SEO and which are there to be taken care of for a great optimisation process, here is one which was not really a apart of it since ever. But then when Google announced that it is going to count this factor of mobile friendliness for SEO and webpage ranking algorithms and mechanisms, there is no way this can be ignored and left aside. So we bring you some specific and relevant information on this front, to make sure that you do not miss out on even this one critical factor from incorporating it into your SEO practices.
The Key is to first check and know if your website at all is mobile user friendly or not. The term means that how smooth, seamless and positive experience one user is going to have when they open your webpage on a mobile or smartphone screen. It is always a great idea to build one with this feature already and always present while you plan the design and other details of your webpage. But if you are in a state where you did not already incorporate the feature, and now realise the need and significance of this part, then this article is here to help you.
So first let’s discuss how can we check if you already have a webpage which fits into mobile user friendly mode, and verify if there is something we can do to fix it if need arises.
The ways to check if you fall into Mobile user friendly zone
This is very quick and fast way to check if your webpage is good to perform on a mobile interface. For this, what you need to do is to open the webpage in your browser and drag and shrink the page from left bottom corner to right top corner. If the page does not break in content and showcased design, then you are good to assume that it is mobile user friendly page. If it is getting distorted then it is a clear NO for the same and you definitely need to put efforts to fix it and get ahead with your SEO practice. This is a extreme quick check but not always 100% reliable and correct as at time, your page might fail the test in further and more stringent test mentioned below, even if it passed this one.
This is a little time taking as compared to the first one. This is a page which is offered by Google to test your website for free if it is mobile friendly or not. The process is pretty straight forward. Copy and paste your website address into the input box and submit it for check and if a while it would tell you if you have something to be concerned about or not.
This is the ultimate test of this feature. It is a dedicated tool on Google Webmaster Page which offers testability of this feature. It is the final nod for your webpage to go ahead, if it comes out clean.
It does not really a concern if you fail or pass the test for your business, as it is always possible , of course with some effort, to refurbish your page to fit and comply with the requirements for you to fit into the pass of mobile user friendly test and be in safe zone.
