What is the Mobile-Friendly Test cmlabs?

Mobile-friendly test is one of the free SEO tools provided by cmlabs. This tool functions to test the mobile-friendliness of a URL from a website. By entering the website address into the box provided, you can find out how well the website is on a mobile display.

In recent years, Google has determined that all websites must be mobile-first. This is due to the growing number of mobile users from time to time.

Therefore, as a website owner, you must ensure that your website is mobile-friendly, responsive on all devices, and provides a good user experience so that it can occupy a high position on search results pages.

Unreachable Web Page?

If the Mobile-Friendly Test tool cannot open the page, an error will appear explaining the problem. Access issues include system availability or site downtime.

This Mobile-Friendly Test tool opens the page as Googlebot (not using your data, but as Google). Because of this, it will most likely be blocked by a robots.txt document.

Pages Contain Unmountable Elements

If the test is unable to mount all the elements used on the page, you will get a notification. Resources are external components included by the page, for example, images, CSS, or script files. This can happen for several reasons:

  • Element could not be loaded in the correct time frame. For this problem, try running the test again at a later time.
  • Element does not exist in the specified area (error 404).
  • This element is not available to clients who are not logged in.
  • The element is set to block Googlebot with a robots.txt file. If the resource is important and is on your own web page, you must allow Googlebot; if it's on another website, you should contact the admin of that webpage and ask him to unblock it.

Unstable Test Results / Page Loading Issues

If you have elements that won't load or other pile-up issues, you may see slightly different results each time you run your test. That's because the stacked resource settings can be different during testing.

Benefits of Having a Mobile Friendly Website

As previously stated, having a mobile-friendly website page is a must if you want to achieve high rankings. The following is a list of advantages of having a mobile-friendly website:

  • Get more traffic from mobile search
  • Potential to rank high on SERP
  • Avoid penalties from search engines
  • Provide a good user experience for visitors

Tips to Make Web Pages More Mobile-Friendly

Now that you know the importance of having a mobile-friendly website, then how do you make the page mobile-friendly? Here are some tips to improve the mobile-friendliness of a website.

Create Responsive Website Appearance

Of course, the appearance of the website on mobile and desktop will be different due to different screen sizes. Therefore, your website should have a responsive display which means it should be able to display well on various screen sizes.

By adjusting the appearance of the website, your website will automatically become mobile-friendly. Consistent display between desktop and mobile screens is very important for visitors’ convenience

Use AMP

AMP (accelerated mobile page) is a framework that was launched to create a simple mobile website and make the page more accessible by reducing some elements that are considered heavy. By using this technology, the website speed will increase and it will be more mobile-friendly.

Increase Loading Speed

In addition to using AMP to increase page speed, you can reduce unnecessary elements that can hinder the page loading process. For a more complete explanation, read also how to increase website loading speed.

Optimize Images

Visual elements such as images must be optimized because these elements contribute to the loading time of a website. You can set the format, compress the image, and add alt-text to the image.

Choose the Right UI

The display or UI we mean includes the use of fonts, simple forms, and pop-ups on web pages. These elements must be optimized on mobile devices with limited screen sizes so as not to affect the overall appearance of the website.
