Google Tool to Check Your Website’s Performance on a Mobile Phone

If you own a website, it is important to take into account how your website would be displayed on a mobile platform. Over the past few years, usage of mobile phones and tablet devices has grown manifold. For instance if even 20% of your readers view your website on a mobile device, then it is a good idea to check how if the links can be clicked with a thumb on a touch screen or if text on a page can be read without the need for magnifying.

Google AdSense obviously sees a lot opportunities for displaying ads on websites viewed on a mobile device. It has developed a free online tool called How to Go Mobile, which helps you check how your website performs on a mobile phone.

  • Enter the URL of your website you want to check and select what you intend to do with your website. This includes options like content publisher or if the website is used to generate leads or about a business that is online as well as offline.
  • The online tool will carry out relevant checks and show up details like Loading Speed, how images appear, text format and navigation.
  • In the above screenshot, you might see that Devils’ Workshop passed all the requirements except that the text might need a bit of work.
It is better to check with Google Analytics if your blog or website needs a mobile version of it before investing too much time in making design changes on your website.
