Is Your Website Mobile Friendly?

How to make your website become mobile-friendly

Google recently rolled out its mobile-first algorithm which gives more ranking favor to mobile-optimized pages. Here’s how you can get started:

Choose a mobile-responsive theme

Due to the clamor for mobile-friendly websites, various website builder platforms offer mobile-friendly themes. These pre-coded designs are ideal for non-coders who want to reach a wider audience. It also saves you from the hassle of starting from scratch.

Use proper button sizes

Your website button (add to cart, read more, etc.) may look fine on a desktop view, but it will be different when it comes to mobile. Aside from choosing a proper theme, you should also resize your buttons so it will be easy to use on small screens.

Compress your CSS and images

By compressing the images and CSS codes of your website, you can expect faster loading time. This way, your website will consume fewer resources when viewed on mobile devices. Make sure that your images are visually appealing but not taxing to website speed.

Perform regular mobile testing

Aside from tailoring your site to fit on a small screen, you should also ensure that its performance is at par with the latest search engine standards. Regularly test your website on smartphones and tablets to check its overall functionality.

Opt for large fonts

It’s way harder to read on a small screen. If you have a very small font, it would be impossible to read it on a smaller screen. It’s best to use 14px fonts as these are easier to the eyes.
