Google’s Test Your Mobile Speed

Here’s a great new tool from Google.

Here’s the link – https://testmysite.thinkwithgoogle.com

Just type in your website address and Google will test your website for load time (on a standard 3g connection) and mobile compatibility.  It will also test how your website looks and handles on mobile devices (font size, layout, etc…).

Google will show you an Industry Comparison of how your site stacks up compared to your competitors and even suggest a few fixes to help speed up your website.

After you test your site, click the link that says “Get My Free Report” and send it to your webmaster.

If you don’t have a webmaster, contact me here!

Is your website mobile friendly?

When was the last time you looked at your website… on your phone? Was it hard to read? Was it difficult to navigate?

Studiopress has a responsiveness test page that will load your website in four mobile sizes, so you can see just how mobile friendly your website is.

The page displays your website in…
240 x 320 (small phone)
320 x 480 (iPhone)
480 x 640 (small tablet)
768 x 1024 (iPad – Portrait)
and desktop

Click the link, add your URL and see how you look to the mobile world.

Here are my results for this site…

If your website isn’t responsive to mobile devices, maybe it’s time for an upgrade. Upgrading to a more responsive theme can be a pretty simple process, especially if you’re using a content management system like Joomla or WordPress.
