Monday Morning Cool Tool: Google Mobile Friendly Tool

I love learning about new tools to make social media marketing more creative and effective, so I  share some of my favourite tools with you at the start of each week. This week I’m recommending  Google Mobile Friendly Test.

 

Use Google Mobile-Friendly Test to see how easily a visitor can use your page on a mobile device. Just enter a page URL to see how your page scores.

Having a mobile-responsive site (ie one that automatically changes its layout and placements of certain menus and buttons automatically) is important because firstly, not only are over half of patients searching online for health information on their smartphone, but secondly, Google now gives ranking priority to those sites that are mobile friendly.  In fact, Google has stated that it will penalize websites that aren’t mobile-responsive, so if your site isn’t optimized for mobile devices, you’ll likely lose out significantly in the organic search rankings. 

To check if your site’s design is responsive, enter its URL into this Google tool.

Here are the results I get for my website.

It only takes a few seconds to do and it’s an important element of your website optimisation.

Monday Morning Cool Tool: TweetsMap

I love learning about new tools to make social media marketing more creative and effective, so I  share some of my favourite tools with you at the start of each week. This week I’m recommending iOS Twitter tool –  Tweeps Map 

The free version of this tool is limited to a visual representation of where  your Twitter followers are based geographically. 

This can be useful to determine whether the content and the language and references you are using are actually relevant to where your followers are living.  In my case, although I live in Ireland, the majority of my followers are based in the USA. 

I can further break this down to State and Province

And City

I can also track which follower geographic locations mention my Twitter account most.

The free plan will allow you to also track top unfollowers and inactive accounts.

Why Mobile Responsive Websites Are A Must

Mobile first-indexing is now fully underway and there’s no excuse for having a website that is not optimized for use across all platforms in 2021.  Most people aren’t looking at your website on a desktop or laptop anymore. They are looking at it on a phone or tablet.

Recent studies show 52% of smartphone users gather health-related information on their phones, ranging from information around a specific medical procedure to diet and nutrition best practices. 

Having a mobile-responsive site (ie one that automatically changes its layout and placements of certain menus and buttons automatically) is important because firstly, over half of patients search online for health information on their smartphone, and secondly, Google now gives ranking priority to those sites that are mobile friendly.  In fact, Google has stated that it will penalize websites that aren’t mobile-responsive, so if your site isn’t optimized for mobile devices, you’ll likely lose out significantly in the organic search rankings.
