Staying at The Top of Google Searches for Smart Phones

Bill Malchisky  September 29 2016 12:10:00 AM
Although quality web developers have known for a while, Google wants you to be mobile friendly. Thus, if you want to stay at the top of Google web searches when the customer uses a smart phone, then your web site must display well on mobile phones. If not, Google will lower your weighting and you'll suddenly show farther down the list versus when the same search is performed on a desktop.

But never fear, Google offers a free tool to check your site. As I thought this tool is handy, I wanted to provide it for you and see if it might assist with volunteer work you might do, when on-the-job, or even checking your competitors' site(s).

Here are a few quick searches and their results: as expected all three are successful.

Classic case of the shoemaker with barefoot children. But I wrote this comment on my Droid, so how bad can it be? ;)

I created a list of items to address herein--the mobile phone enhancement made the list.

Thank you for reading, guys.
