If your web site is not mobile friendly Google has a test and resources telling you what you need to do to make your site mobile friendly.

Google has a web page at https://search.google.com/test/mobile-friendly that analyzes a URL and reports if the web page at that url has a mobile-friendly design.

A website that is responsive and mobile friendly looks quite different on a mobile device (phone) then it looks like on a desktop and/or laptop. The width and height, called viewport, of the device you are using plays a major factor.

To find out the width and height of the viewport of your device to go https://whatismyviewport.com/.

If the web page fails this test and/or has resource problems Google has resources telling you what you need to do to make your site mobile friendly. (Although you may need to be fairly technical to understand these instructions.)

Responsive Web Design is Important

  • Responsive web design is where the website layout changes (in a fluid like manner) based on the size and capabilities of the device used to view the website.
  • For example, on a phone, users would see content shown in a single column view; where a laptop might show the same content in multiple columns.
  • Applying responsive web design practices to your current unresponsive website structure may be expensive and/or time consuming.
  • You may need to explore having your website redesigned using “responsive” web design practices.
