Cell phones changed the world. We are literally walking around with a small computer in our hands. Nearly everyone has their smartphones with them 24/7 constantly communicating and searching for information. In many countries, the number of smartphones has surpassed the number of personal computers; having a mobile-friendly website has become a critical part of having an online presence.
If you’re going to spend valuable time and money on marketing your small business, make sure your website is mobile-friendly. In a world of Google Maps, Waze, Yelp reviews, and smartphones in general, any person with a smartphone or tablet can find your product almost instantly. If they can’t find it quickly because your website is not correctly optimized for mobile devices. Or, if they do find it, they aren’t impressed with its design or layout—they’re not likely to stick around.
On the other hand, if you have a good site that loads quickly and provides excellent information while guiding visitors through making a purchase or calling an appointment (ideally both), you’ll be much more likely to see those conversions occur.
The Mobile-Friendly test tool is easy to use; simply type in the full URL of the web page that you want to test. Any redirects implemented by the page will be followed by the test. The test typically takes less than a minute to run.
Test results include a screenshot of how the page looks to Google on a mobile device, as well as a list of any mobile usability problems that it finds. Mobile usability problems are issues that can affect a user that visits the page on a mobile (small screen) device, including small font sizes (which are hard to read on a small screen) and use of Flash (which isn’t supported by most mobile devices).
