Is your site mobile-friendly? Google tells you with 1 click

Since 2014 mobile has passed desktop users. Is your site caught up with the curve?

Google’s new website, Think With Google, can inform you where your site stands.

Google’s interface rates your site on 3 important performance categories.

  1.  Mobile Friendliness
  2.  Mobile Speed
  3.  Desktop Speed

Google gives your site a score from 0-100 for each of these categories.

I compared a few search sites to see how they stacked up against each other.

Google vs. Bing vs. Yahoo vs. Ask vs. AolSearch

(^ Are you kidding me with that desktop speed right now? Come on Google, it’s 2016, step up your game.)

After the initial scores Google also provides a break down of each category with tips on how to improve your sites performance.

Dennis Yu, the CTO of BlitzMetrics talked about the benefit of using this site.Dennis

“If you want to rank in search, better listen to Google’s advice. Site speed is important for the user experience, especially in mobile.”

This tool is completely free, and takes only seconds to use. Don’t let your content or brand become obsolete by falling behind current trends. An important part of business is being able to adapt with the times.

So how does your site score?
