An announcement was made by Google on the Google Small Business blog, which said that they have released a new landing page to test your web site’s mobile friendliness and page speed for desktop and mobile all in one place. With this tool, site testing should be a lot easier for small businesses, rather than going to the specific mobile friendly testing tool and/or page speed testing tool.
You can find the new tool over here. Here are the unique aspects of the tool:
- Get all three scores on one page
- Google will email you a more comprehensive report for you to share with your webmaster team
- Google will now give you a 0 out of a 100 score for how mobile friendly your web site is, as opposed to if it is mobile friendly or not.
Here is what the scores say:
- Mobile-friendliness: This is the quality of the experience customers have when they’re browsing your site on their phones. To be mobile-friendly, your site should have tappable buttons, be easy to navigate from a small screen, and have the most important information up front and center.
- Mobile speed: This is how long it takes your site to load on mobile devices. If customers are kept waiting for too long, they’ll move on to the next site.
- Desktop speed: This is how long it takes your site to load on desktop computers. It’s not just the strength of your customers’ web connection that determines speed, but also the elements of your website.
This is what it looks like when you put your site into the tester:
As you can tell, the site gives you a basic overview of your site. As you scroll down, you can get more details on how to make your site more mobile-friendly or faster on desktop or mobile browsers.
EDIT: After waiting a few hours, I finally got the report back that showed, in more detail, what was right with the site, as well as what could be fixed with the site.
Here’s what the first part of the report will look like:
