Should Your Site Be Mobile Friendly?

Mobile use is growing rapidly, now at 75% as of December 2014. This is critical for businesses since 94% mobile users are seeking local information from their smartphone. With the increase of mobile users shopping on their smartphones, Google will soon be releasing an algorithm that penalizes non mobile-friendly sites.

What Exactly is Mobile Friendly?

Google insist that a mobile-friendly site must meet the criteria listed below:

  • Avoid Flash
  • Readable text that does not need zoom
  • Content is sized according to the screen
  • Links are spaced out so the correct one can be tapped

How Can I Test My Site?
