WordPress Wisdom – 3 Ways To Know If Your Website Is Mobile-Friendly

Having a mobile-friendly website is essential in the current business landscape. Not only does having a responsive website ensure that visitors have the best possible experience when they visit your website but it is also an important ranking factor when it comes to SEO. If your website is not mobile-friendly, it’s crucial that you hire an experienced web designer to help you set things straight.

Here at C7 Creative, our mobile website designers offer a range of WordPress services in Jacksonville FL, designed to make your website look great, function seamlessly, and perform in the search results. While many of our clients understand the importance of hiring a reputable web designer to ensure their website is mobile-friendly, many are unsure as to whether or not their website is mobile-friendly in the first place.

Below, our mobile website designers at C7 Creative outline three simple ways that you can check if your business website is mobile-friendly or not.

The Quick Option

One of the fastest ways to check if your website is mobile-friendly or not is to simply open your website in your browser on your laptop or desktop PC. Grab the edge of your browser window with your mouse and drag it as far as you can to one side to make the browser as narrow as possible. If your website responds to the new screen size, it is probably mobile-friendly. On the other hand, if sections are cut off, you may need to hire a mobile web designer to update your site’s design.

Google’s Mobile-Friendly Test

While the quick method above is a great starting point it is not always 100% accurate. For a more comprehensive answer, try using Google’s free mobile-friendly test. Simply navigate to the website, enter your URL and click “Analyze”. Google will provide you with a report that will highlight any issues that might need attention and will let you know whether or not your site is mobile-friendly.

Use Webmaster Tools

For an even more comprehensive report and analysis of your website, log in to your Google Webmaster Tools account. Within your account, you will find a mobile usability test that will give you even more insight into any issues that your website may have in terms of mobile usability such as slow mobile pages, blocked Javascript, CSS and image files, mobile-only 404’s and a host of other potential issues. If there are problems with your site during this test, be sure to get in touch with our C7 Creative WordPress services in Jacksonville FL to find out how our mobile website designers can get your website back on track and optimized for mobile.

Make Sure Your Website Is Mobile-Friendly To Provide The Best User Experience

If you use any of the three methods above and find out that your website is not mobile-friendly, you need to take action right away. Having a website that is not designed for mobile can affect your Google rankings, resulting in a poor user experience and, ultimately have a negative impact on your sales. To ensure your website is fully responsive, be sure to get in touch with our team at C7 Creative today. With our comprehensive range of tried and tested WordPress services Jacksonville FL business owners can rest easy knowing they are in safe hands with our web design experts.
