Basic SEO Training: Mobile-Friendly Test

Your website needs to be mobile-friendly nowadays. For your users and Google. Since Mobilegeddon, it’s just a basic requirement to have a website that works well on mobile. Not sure how mobile-friendly your website is and how to improve your mobile SEO? Google provides a test to check your website: the Mobile-Friendly Test. It runs a check on your website and tells you what you should adjust to improve the user experience on a mobile device.

In our Basic SEO training Michiel shares how this test can help you improve your site for mobile users:

Google is actually focusing on this a lot. We’ve already mentioned Mobilegeddon. And Mobilegeddon simply means you have to optimize your website for mobile devices. And Google helps you with that. Google has a Mobile-Friendly Test that will immediately tell you if your website is mobile-friendly or not, according to Google (it’s not foolproof). And it will also tell you what things you can optimize: that could be your font size, it could be an adjustment of viewport (which is actually a bit technical), but it’s also about whether your links are to close together, because that will just make it harder to click one individual link.

    Thanks for that. I actually tested my site and it was mobile friendly, though I was expecting that ’cause I’m using a responsive theme :) .
