Bing Mobile Friendly Test

As if you need any more reason to go mobile friendly, Bing last week launched their mobile friendliness tool.

Bing Mobile Friendly Test

Bing’s mobile algorithm follows Google which launched theirs back in April. The update is now clearly in view and should follow in the coming months.

As the internet’s 2nd biggest search engine with a 20% market share, any changes to Bing will certainly have an effect on businesses.

If your website is not yet mobile friendly, the update which should roll out on Bing in a couple of months, will surely have an impact.

Following Google’s mobile update, countless businesses were hard hit hard by falling mobile rankings.

 

What Bing Expects

Similar to Google, Bing’s mobile friendly test gives an idea of what the search engine expects from mobile websites:

  • Viewport and Zoom control configuration
  • Width of page content – Does the content fit the screen?
  • Readability of text on the page – Can the content be read on a small mobile screen?
  • Spacing of links and other elements on the page – Can all elements be used without conflict?
  • Use of incompatible plug-ins – Elements that won’t work on mobile devices.
