Google Search Now Adds “Mobile-Friendly” Tag Into The Results
Google’s last move is to add tags displaying whether websites are mobile-friendly or not. They simple insert the tag into the results page. The update is aimed at helping users to find mobile-friendly pages easier when they search things on Google via mobile phones. Google Search’s new feature is expected to be launched in the whole world within a few weeks.
According to Google’s official blog, your website should fulfill these criteria to get the “mobile-friendly” tag:
- Avoids software that is not common on mobile devices, like Flash
- Uses text that is readable without zooming
- Sizes content to the screen so users don’t have to scroll horizontally or zoom
- Places links far enough apart so that the correct one can be easily tapped
Reminder: You can always check your webpage’s mobile availability from the link.
Google provides an example of how this new feature will look like:
