Google penalizes sites that are not mobile-friendly or responsive. There is one easy way to test if your site is ready for this change. Simply go to Google’s mobile friendly test page and enter your URL. That simple.
There are less technical ways to check.
- Try resizing your browser and see if you start seeing a right to left scroll bar. Yes or No?
- On mobile, are the fonts way to small to read?
- Is the mobile layout exactly the same as the desktop?
If you answered “yes” to any of these, then it’s time to switch to a mobile template.
