  • Helping users find mobile-friendly pages
    (Originally posted on the Google Webmaster Central Blog)

    Have you ever tapped on a Google Search result on your mobile phone, only to find yourself looking at a page where the text was too small, the links were tiny, and you had to scroll sideways to see all the content? This usually happens when the website has not been optimized to be viewed on a mobile phone.

    This can be a frustrating experience for our mobile searchers. Starting today, to make it easier for people to find the information that they’re looking for, we’re adding a “mobile-friendly” label to our mobile search results.


    This change will be rolling out globally over the next few weeks. A page is eligible for the “mobile-friendly” label if it meets the following criteria as detected by Googlebot:
    • Avoids software that is not common on mobile devices, like Flash
    • Uses text that is readable without zooming
    • Sizes content to the screen so users don't have to scroll horizontally or zoom
    • Places links far enough apart so that the correct one can be easily tapped
    If you want to make sure that your page meets the mobile-friendly criteria:
    The tools and documentation above are currently available in English. They will be available in additional languages within the next few weeks.

    We see these labels as a first step in helping mobile users to have a better mobile web experience. We are also experimenting with using the mobile-friendly criteria as a ranking signal.

    If you have any questions or want to help others make mobile-friendly sites, visit our Webmaster Help Forum. We hope to see many more mobile-friendly websites in the future. Let’s make the web better for all users!

  • ThriftyFun.com boosts page views with mobile site redesign
    Lewis Sandbeck founded ThriftyFun.com in 1999 as a community for people who seek creative and cost-saving household projects.  With the help of AdSense, it grew into a full-time job for his brother, mother, and him.

    When the Sandbecks noticed that 40% of their users were actually using mobile devices, they decided to redesign their site using responsive web design. With the help of Google’s multi-screen resources, they began designing “for the smallest screen first” with added experiences for desktop users.

    Today, ThriftyFun.com works for users on all devices.  Lewis notes that “we’re seeing mobile users actually visit more pages thanks to the new design”. Watch the video to learn why ThriftyFun.com decided to go mobile.


    To learn how you too can provide a great site experience for all of your users, follow our multi-screen starter guide.

  • Linking Google Analytics with your Google AdSense account just became easier
    If you want to grow your website and your ad revenue, you need to understand your audience. Google Analytics is a powerful tool that helps you better understand your site visitors and define the right strategy for your site.

    We've recently improved how Google Analytics links to your AdSense account, making it easier than ever to understand what's working on your site. With this new update, you can link your AdSense account within Google Analytics in fewer steps and can also link your AdSense account to multiple Google Analytics accounts.

    If you haven’t linked Google Analytics with your AdSense account yet, it’s a good time to learn more about your audience. Linking these accounts can help you:

    • Optimize your website: Identify opportunities across traffic sources, geographies, devices, pages and browsers.
    • Improve user experience: See which pages are popular among your visitors and which pages drive them away. Understanding where your visitors’ attention is focused will also help you to place your ads where users are most likely to look at them.
    • Grow revenue: Make changes based on how earnings are affected by aspects of user behaviour such as visit frequency and page depth.
    Learn how to link Google Analytics with your AdSense account in our Help Center and start identifying revenue opportunities. If you don’t have a Google Analytics account, you can easily set up your account now.

    As always, we’d love to hear your feedback. Tell us what you think and share your insights from Google Analytics in the comment section below this post.
