Track Mobile Usability with New Webmaster Tools Report

Posted on 10.30.2014

While there are many design aspects that run seamlessly on both desktops and mobile devices, there are also some that can cause problems when displaying on mobile devices.

As the mobile Web becomes more prevalent it is crucial that designers constantly monitor their sites for these possible errors in order to make sure they are getting the most out of their mobile efforts.

To help designers, Google has announced the addition of a new feature to their Webmaster Tools titled Mobile Usability.

The new feature delivers reports to website designers stating how their website is performing on mobile devices. One of the elements the reports will come with are detailed graphs outlining a historical count of a site's mobile problems enabling designers to see how they are progressing, or regressing, on the mobile front.

Other problem areas that Mobile Usability reports will detail include flash content, missing viewport (a meta-tag for mobile pages), small fonts, fixed-width viewports clickable links and buttons that are placed too close to each other.
