Today, Bing has announced the release of the mobile friendliness test tool. Back in May, Bing said that they had been working on a mobile-friendly Bing ranking algorithm and was expected to see the light of day late summer, but ended up being delayed.
With this new mobile friendliness test tool, you can evaluates a page to see if it is mobile-friendly based on a variety of criteria including:
- Viewport and Zoom control configuration
- Width of page content
- Readability of text on the page
- Spacing of links and other elements on the page
- Use of incompatible plug-ins
At this point, Bing hasn’t announced the launch of their mobile-friendly algorithm. That could be something that could end up being released soon.
In a Binb blog post, there is a lot of details on why a website could end up failing any of the above criteria. Because of this, you should make sure you check it out. You will be able to check out the tool by following this URL.
