Do you notice anything different about Le Blog? If you are a on phone you probably do! Yup, Merriweather Council Blog is now mobile friendly.
… which is nice and all of that but generally, I do not *love* mobile versions of websites. Now, I don’t know if you know this, but Google has started to penalize websites that are not mobile friendly in search results. And that was my main motivator. I want people to be able to find me, obviously, in Google.
The Merriweather Council Blog was responsive – the screen scaled down to fit your phone – but it was not ‘mobile friendly.’
So you know how I generally post on tuesdays? Well, I was taking care of fixing this blog up so it would be mobile friendly as per Google.
I wanted to share this info with you so that you would know that, no, you weren’t going crazy, the blog does actually look a tiny bit different, and also, so that you can check you site too.
Use this tool to test your URL for mobile compatibility. If your site doesn’t pass, check this list. If you are using a theme on your site, check for updates from the developer. If all else fails, find a web developer who you can work with or buy a new theme that comes with a mobile friendly preset.
Good luck out there.
