How To Determine If Your Website Is Mobile-Friendly

May 1, 2015

Let’s face it, our mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) have become an attachment to our self. As a result, when we use the web browser on these devices we want the websites to load and fit the screen size without having to make adjustments. Web sites that are able to automatically make these adjustments are known as mobile-friendly sites. I know myself, if I visit a site on my smartphone and it is difficult to read and navigate, I typically will not revisit the site.

How important is this? If your site is not mobile-friendly (not formatted to fit the screen) there is a possibility your Google PageRank will be affected (read this). Of course site content is a major factor in maintaining a high PageRank; however, Google is now also factoring mobile friendliness into this mix, as well.

How To Determine If Your Site Is Mobile-Friendly

If you want to determine if your site (or any site for that matter) is mobile-friendly, I encourage you to take the Mobile-Friendly Test at the Google Developers web site.

 This test will analyze a URL and report if the page has a mobile-friendly design.

Learn more about the mobile-friendly criteria and how it may affect Google’s search results by reading our blog post.

Send Notes and Send Directions To Your Phone From Google Search

April 26, 2015

This week’s hot Google news is similar news from last week, with a different twist, where you can go to the Google Search page (or the Google Chrome’s omnibox) and type in “find my phone” (see article here).

This week Google revealed you can go to the Google Search page (or the Google Chrome’s omnibox) and type  “Send Directions” (to push driving directions to your phone) or “Send Note” (to push a note to your phone). Appears you have to be signed into your Google account through your web browser (Google Chrome) to make this work. READ MORE…

Google Keep – Keeps Getting Better

March 31, 2015

Recently I posted an article [click here], that gave you some insight about Google Keep and how it has become one of my favorite apps. If you do not know about Google Keep I encourage you to read the article. Google Keep has become a very popular note keeping app that is available on the web (in your browser) and as an app on your mobile devices.

Google Keep

This past week Google added two NEW features to Google Keep. The one feature, that was definitely on my wish list, is that you now have the ability to add labels to your notes. This is a very powerful feature that gives you the ability to organize and categorize your notes. The second NEW feature is the recurring reminders where you can configure notes to repeatedly remind you of matters so that you never miss a beat.

As the title of this blog post suggest, “Google Keep – Keeps Getting Better”… I can’t wait to see what Google has up their sleeve in the future for this very popular and useful application.

To help get you started, Google Keep for the Google Chrome Browser is available [here] and Google Keep for the Android tablet and smartphone platforms is available [here] …
