For both the dynamic view and the individual URLs, the number of different views or URLs (for example, www and m.dot) is determined by the configuration. Often there are at least two variants available, a desktop and a smartphone variant. The latter is often responsive and therefore very suitable for all types of smartphones and even tablets.
Sometimes the choice is made to show the desktop version of the site to tablets. In that case, it is important that the desktop version is touch friendly , because elements within a desktop version are often only tuned and react differently to the use of a mouse than a finger.
Merging two different mobile sites can result in a mixed version, where the type of mobile site varies from page to page. This should not be a problem, as long as the required configuration is correct.

Okay, you’ve gone through the first step and there’s a site that works well on mobile devices. The second step is to check if your mobile site is in line with VP Media Email Lists Google’s mobile-friendly guidelines. In recent years, and especially in the months leading up to April 21, 2015, Google has clearly shown the importance of mobile.

Use this tool to test the URL of a web page to find out if it is also mobile-friendly. There are two different reasons why a page is not mobile-friendly:
- Mobile usability
- Content accessibility
1. Mobile Usability
Mobile usability for each page should be fine. For example, the text may be too small, forcing the visitor to zoom in. Or the page may be partially out of view, requiring horizontal scrolling.
If you have received emails from Google in recent months about the mobile usability of your website, then there is a good chance that you will see these notifications, including the URLs where this occurs, in the ‘ Mobile usability ‘ report in Google Webmaster Tools.
