The 2016 SEO's Mobile Website Audit Checklist
The Mobile Era is officially here with desktops taking a backseat to the growing flood of tablet and smart phone users who demand speed, ease of use and everything within a few clicks (or a simple voice command away). We've been your biggest supporter when it comes to answering this shift when we began warning you of its growing importance years ago with more content pieces than we care to count.
However, through it all this Mobile Audit Checklist has been the most popular resource to date. Within it you'll find the mobile site issues that we've discovered through countless hours of trial and error, in addition to errors that Google and other search engines continue to warn webmasters about. If you're serious about doing a successful website audit, then each of the items below needs to be reviewed in addition to our main Website Audit Checklist.
We've broken this checklist into 4 different categories:
- All Mobile Sites - A must read regardless of the type of site you have.
- Dedicated Mobile Sites - Dedicated Mobile/Static combinations (m.yourdomain.com).
- RESS Sites - Responsive Design + Server Side Sites that change content/templates based on user agent.
- AMP Sites - Sites that offer AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages).
