The mobile users of internet are increasing on a rapid pace across the world. Keeping this fact into view Google introduces mobile usability tracking feature in its webmaster tools on October 29. Now webmasters and site owners can check how Google spiders see their website. There was so much noise around the internet market that Google is going to add site’s mobile usability as a ranking signal and this new feature has just blown the fire. And why should not Google pay emphasis on it? In my opinion it should be implemented before, well it’s like the English idiom “Better late than never”.
This feature can check flash usage (flash makes compatibility issues especially it sucks with iOS and hampers speed, etc.), font size, touch elements closeness, content not sized to viewport, etc.
So, if you run a mobile-friendly website, this feature can help you find remaining issues which you have missed in your site development.
John Mueller mentions on Google webmaster central blog on Wednesday October 29 that “The new feature shows mobile usability issues we’ve identified across your website, complete with graphs over time so that you see the progress that you’ve made”
Mobile users of internet are almost equal to desktop users so this innovating feature of Google webmaster tools can help you to locate mobile usability issues so that you can correct them also this feature emphasize to make mobile-friendly websites.
