I just had to make you aware of this before you break up for Christmas – It’s an important change which will affect how your website is shown in Google search results….

google-mobile-friendly

Google is reportedly all set to highlight mobile friendly websites in their search results. This will include a “Mobile-Friendly” tag which highlights that the website is useable on mobile devices.

How do you get your website highlighted as mobile friendly?

Google highlights the following requirements in order for your website to be listed as Mobile-friendly:

  • Avoid software not common on mobile devices (i.e. Flash)
  • Use text size that is readable without resizing
  • Scale content to fit the screen so that the user doesn’t have to pinch or zoom
  • Leave enough space between links and tappable/touchable objects
