Google Launches Mobile-Friendly Test Tool

Published on November 18, 2014

Google’s adding a “mobile-friendly” label to the mobile search results starting from today. As they say, the change will be rolling out globally over the next few weeks.

To be eligible for the “mobile-friendly” label, a web page needs to meet the following criteria:

[checklist icon=”fa-check” iconcolor=”#000000″ circle=”no” circlecolor=”” size=”medium” class=”” id=””]

  • Avoid using software not supported by mobile devices (Flash)
  • Text should be readable without zooming
  • Users do not have to scroll horizontally or zoom (screen sizing)
  • Users should be able to click on the desired link on a page easily (links should be placed far from each other)


So, do you think your website is mobile-friendly? Think no more!

Google also launches a new tool to test your website’s mobile friendliness – Mobile Friendly Test Tool. You can check your web pages, find out the page issues and how to solve them.
