Ensuring Your Site is Mobile-Friendly

The WordPress.com Blog

Today, Google released a change to its algorithm that gives higher search scores to sites it deems “mobile-friendly.” Curious WordPressers might be asking:

  1. How can I be sure my site is mobile-friendly?
  2. What can I do if my site is not mobile-friendly?

1. See if your site is mobile-friendly

Visit Google’s mobile-friendly test link and enter your site’s address (e.g., http://dailypost.wordpress.com or http://automattic.com). Google will then analyze your site and declare it mobile-friendly or not.

Did your site pass? YAY! Pass GO and collect $200 from the Community Chest.

2. What can I do if my site is not mobile-friendly?

If your site failed Google’s test, you might be using an older theme that’s not responsive. Responsive themes change their layout slightly when someone visits via tablet or mobile phone to ensure that important content like the site title, post titles, and post content can be read on smaller screens.

Starting Somewhere..

In the middle of many assignments, my mind happens to go into a blank space. Then it transfers me into DEEP thought on why I haven’t started doing what I said I would do. This website, being one. Since a child, I had to grow up doing things like: voicing my opinion to my mother, by sliding notes under her door. It was our way of communication… she was a poet so it was the only way she knew how to communicate with her kids… However, it took me a while to realize that the lack of understanding, is what made me a more inquisitive person and also a very intrinsic writer. This first blog is just many of the one’s I hope to take somewhere..

Its taken me a lot to get this far, so with hopes and prayerfully a lot of work on my end, it helps me out.
