Is your website mobile friendly yet, or are you missing out on traffic and search engine rankings?
Last week Google’s John Mueller introduced about the “Mobile Testing Tool” and since then, Google has found 2 same repetitive trends when webmasters are claiming the tool does not work right.
Yesterday John Mueller wrote on Google+ that typically when the mobile testing tool saying your page or website is not mobile friendly, but the PageSpeed Insights Tool showing that it’s ok. I have noticed 2 common mistakes that I wanted to share.
- Too much blocked by robots.txt
- Cloaking to Googlebot
Check John Mueller words what he said:
- Cloaking to Googlebot. Cloaking has been in our Webmaster Guidelines for a long time, it causes all kinds of problems. Some sites try to recognize Googlebot by looking for “Googlebot” in the user-agent, and will then serve it a “Googlebot-version” of the page (which is often the desktop page). If Googlebot-smartphone crawls and sees the desktop page, the page won’t be seen as being mobile-friendly. Fetch and Render in Webmaster Tools can help you recognize this. The PageSpeed Insights tool doesn’t use the Googlebot user-agent. Don’t cloak!
