Have You Checked Your Website on Your Phone?
Have you checked your website on your phone lately?
Given that over half of global web traffic comes from mobile devices, it’s important to have a mobile-friendly website.
For a quick test, Navigate to your website from a desktop computer. Resize your window by grabbing the right side of the window and drag it as far as possible to the left. If anything looks out of place, your website probably isn’t going to work well for mobile users.
To check things out with more depth, try out Google’s “Mobile-Friendly Test”. Within a few seconds, Google’s tool will analyze your site and let you know if there is anything that doesn’t work well with best mobile web design practices.
Finally, visit your website on your phone and test it out. It doesn’t have to be the exact same as your desktop website, but it needs to offer a comparable experience with similar information and functionality. Google’s Webmaster Tools offer a great usability test if you have the time and technical expertise.
